If we could think about domestic labor, there’s a whole lot of other films, 
many by women, to consider:

Chantal Akerman, Jeanne Dielman 23 quai de Commerce
Gunvor Nelson and Dorothy Wiley, SCHMEERGUNTZ
Carikee Schneenman, Kitch’s Last Meal
Lizzie Borden, Working Girls
Michelle Citron, Queer Fest (interactive media)
Marjorie Keller, Misconcneption (and many other films by her)
Joyce Weiland, Water Sark
Chick Strand, Fake Fruit
Laura Kipnis, Ecstasy Unlimited

and all birth films, even those made by men like Water Window Baby Moving, 
contain representations of women’s labor/women in labor

and many many more films if we think about women’s emotional labor in dealing 
with the family, or a man
