off-beat documentary in the steps of Harvest of Shame
9 September 2006 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

I saw this film shortly after its release, at a ramshackle cinema in Cambridgeport, MA, about 1980-81. I wish it would be released in some sort of retail form today. The thesis was, that in the doldrum days of NASA in the 1970s, a community of trailer-park trash which had provided services to the space program in the 60s had been 'abandoned' along the Florida coast in the vicinity of Cape Canaveral. The film was a hand-held camera "reality show" before there were reality shows, and provided some hair-raising glimpses into what happens when a community is abandoned and turns in on itself (and breeds in on itself, as I recall...) Now NASA is up and running again, and that part of Florida east of Orlando is retirement heaven...I wonder how this film is holding up?
