Life in the dumps in Guatemala City....
25 February 2007 | by recarschSee all my reviews

"Recycled Life" tells the heart-wrenching reality of several generations of lives lived in Guatemala City's municipal dump. Beautiful cinematography combined with a thought-provoking script makes for a stunning short documentary.

Producer Glad and his associates have spent more than three years making the film. One of the film's "stars," Hanley, was killed in a car accident after the project wrapped and just days before the film was nominated for the Academy Award.

If ever a film deserved an Academy Award - this is it -I hope it wins tonight!
