EPISODE 31 - Happy Earth Day! 

Super thrilled to  share this episode with you!  We have the creator and host of the new Documentary Movie - Scrap.  Ten years in the making, 4 years of filming, travel, zoom calls and many hours of effort has resulted in a movie that brings to light the amazing salvaging, upcycling and restoration efforts to divert items from the landfill!  We sit down with the writer, director and producer - Stacey Tenenbaum and get some of the behind the scenes access to the process and the result of her movie!

The Industrial Age left us with refuse too vast to bury and impossible to ignore. Earth's resources are finite, yet after serving their short-lived purpose, our cars, appliances and electronics takes centuries to decay. These rusting skeletal remains, especially machines that shaped the landscape and our ability to move within it, are valued objects for those willing to reclaim them. A South Dakota farmer transforms oxidized agricultural machinery into beautiful sculptures that reflect the natural world, while across the ocean, British phone booths are painstakingly restored to their former glory. Whether it be living in abandoned aircraft husks on Bangkok's outskirts or transforming freighter ships into architectural wonders, the human capacity to revitalize obsolete artifacts is inspiring. Beneath the rust and flaking paint of these sensitive vignettes is the scale of its subject matter. Soaring aerial images immerse us in post-apocalyptic landscapes that restore faith in a "waste not, want not" world. Alexander Rogalski

Scrap has partnered with CNIB's Phone It Forward program for their screenings and encourages audiences to donate eligible older cell phones at the theatre. The donated phones will be used to help provide a refurbished smartphone to someone who is blind or partially sighted. Donators will be issued a tax receipt.
