Only 1.6% of auto mechanics are female, but there is one garage that is completely run by women.
Alt Auto is a short experimental film that depicts a crew of women who work together to maintain an alternative space that has been around for 30 years. It captures a culture that is held together through camaraderie and grit. The film weaves together the imagery of rough hands and scenes of companionship to create a document of a very different labor space. The film is set in an all-female run and operated auto garage in Columbus, Ohio. Film is made by Liz Cambron, Megan Hague, and Ashley Walton.
