Filmed in Uruguay and Argentina, Manos follows fisherwomen, manicurists, and glove inspectors. The film focuses on women's hands as indexes of gendered labor and the "triple day". Traces of labor live on their hands and in the objects and sounds that surround them. The "triple day" is the stacking and intersecting of three distinct labor types – formal, informal, and reproductive labor. These labor types are re-channeled towards strikes, protests, cooperatives, lateral mutual aide and in the struggle for reproductive rights. 50 minutes.
