My Grandmother Worked

This short is an interrogation of the videomaker's own experience as a black woman working as a nanny for a white family in NYC. Intercutting images of her former place of employment on the opulent Upper West side with photographs of her grandmother who also worked as a nanny and who "raised two generations of white children", Dixon draws on her grandmother's experience in this search for an understanding of the issues around race, gender and class that delineate the historically loaded work she and her grandmother have shared.
