Trash Day is based on a personal ad found on the website Craigslist. The original ad was out of Colorado Springs, and is now featured in the Best of Craigslist section.
A woman longing for the affections of her trash man uses her trash to let him know how she feels. Every Tuesday is the same routine, sit and wait till the sound of the trash truck nears, so she can watch him collect her garbage and gifts.
Trash Day, By Sam Lerma, has screened at SXSW 2010, the San Antonio Film Festival, the LA Shorts Film Festival, The San Francisco Shorts Film Festival, The Dallas Video Fest, The Long Island Latino Film Fest, The Seguin Film Fest, and The SAL Film Festival. It has taken home a Jury Award from SAL, Best Short at Seguin, and Best Director at Long Island.
