“…haunting and magnificent.” – Oliver Stone
A surprising number of people make their living off America’s vast rivers of trash. Winner of “Audience Favorite, Silver Award- 2015 Active Cinema” at the Mill Valley Film Festival, this film tells the story of one such river in Dogtown, West Oakland, a bustling yet invisible corner of California. We follow the lives of three recyclers and, through them, are introduced to the art, science, economics and politics of recycling: what it offers, how it touches the poor and why it matters to all of us. Shot over seven years, Dogtown Redemption is not only the intimate story of recyclers in West Oakland, but a journey through a landscape of love and loss, devotion and addiction, prejudice and poverty. Directors: Amir Soltani, Chihiro Wimbush. (US 2015) 94 min.
