Directed by Stacey Tenenbaum • Documentary • 2022 • 78 minutes
Discover the vast and strangely beautiful places where things go to die and meet the people who collect, restore, and recycle the world’s scrap. SCRAP is a love letter to the things we use in our daily lives. This cinematic documentary tells the stories of people who have deep connections to objects that have reached their end of life.
The stories convey a deeper environmental and human message about our relationship to things, the sadness we feel at their eventual loss, and the joy that we find in giving them a new purpose. By showing discarded goods in a new way, the film raises awareness about the fate of the things we use and explores how artists and other creative thinkers can be part of finding usefulness in the things we discard.
