"Forged by adversity, united by humanity."
This documentary film is a meditation on five humans living on the margins in Tucson, Arizona. Through perseverance, each has found their own path through hardship and suffering. Gritty, raw and emotionally challenging, Tucson Salvage lets you in close to people not usually seen or valued in society.
Directed by Maggie Smith, shot by Tim Gillis, edited by Allen Colombo at Effie Studios
