Dirty Work (2004)
Dirty Work follows three men who deal with our unpleasant business -- Russ, a bull semen collector, Darrell, a septic tank pumper, and Bernard, an embalmer. They take us into worlds that are right under our noses but we never see, providing services most of us depend on but prefer not to do ourselves. Unorthodox childhoods led them into these odd, intense careers, giving them uncommon insight into how the rest of us live. Darrell traces cultural trends from what he finds in septic tanks. Russ sees his job collecting semen from prize bulls as a way to help save the family farmer. And Bernard the "restorative artist" offers an irreverent look into how the modern death industry distances us from the dead we're trying to mourn. Above all, Dirty Work is the story of how three men discover their passion in our society's undesirable professions. Russ, Darrell, and Bernard don't just do our dirty work, they feel called to it. After meeting them, you will never look at their work or our world the same way again.- Written by David Sampliner & Tim Nackashi
