Paraíso - a short film about window washing
September 10, 2013 6:01 AM   Subscribe

From today's NYTimes Op Ed, a short documentary about brothers, Sergio Polanco and Jaime Polanco, and their cousin, Cruz Guzman working 50+ stories above the ground.

If you live in a big city, you've seen them and wondered about their lives. These men are SEIU members and as one mentioned in the film at least if he dies on the job, his family will be taken care of.

That was excellent. I always wonder who those guys are and if I'd have the nerve to do what they do. The heights are one thing; the size of the spiders on the outside of the 44th floor is another thing altogether.
