Storyline

A surprising number of Americans make their living off America's vast rivers of trash. These are America's unseen. Dogtown Redemption tells the story of one river, and the humanity of its inhabitants in Dogtown, West Oakland, a lively, bustling yet invisible corner of California. We follow the lives of three recyclers: Jason Witt, the titan of recycling, Landon Goodwin, a former minister, and crack addict who struggles with his own fall from grace, and Miss Hayok Kay, the ultimate outsider, formerly a punk rocker from a prominent Korean family, now at the mercy of the elements and predators. Through them, we are introduced to the art, science, economics and politics of recycling: what it offers, how it touches the poor and why it matters to all of us. Written by Anonymous

Superb and captivating

From the very beginning this documentary clearly engages the viewer in the journey of a group of homeless people in Oakland. Following them through their daily lives is inspirational, heart-wrenching and thoroughly absorbing. A must see for all. I knew it would be worthy of an Emmy nomination when I went to the preview.
