ENGLISH
Trashborn is a short documentary which follows seven families of trash divers over four years on a garbage dump in the Dominican Republic, using the dump as a central meeting point of all seven stories. These trash divers build their houses from garbage, eat thrown away scraps, and make pennies by scavenging metal, plastic, cardboard, and glass and yet — they are still able to share their hopes, loves, and dreams.
