Salvage (2019, Amy C. Elliott, Canada, 57 min.) + shorts

What a dump! While this term has long held a pejorative connotation, many residents of Yellowknife, Canada would disagree—they’re proud of their dump. Here, people come to salvage what others have discarded, reducing and reusing items improperly regarded as waste and building community in the process. But changes are afoot, as new residents want a more “modern” waste management system. (Part of a conversation with the Borough of State College about the future of plastic bags. Additional short films will be shown as part of the screening. Screening will be followed by a panel discussion with experts in waste and materials management.)
