Posted by novoscene on March 5, 2009
Tonight the GTU Justice Collaborative is putting poverty on trial. The night begins with a screening of the film Redemption, which follows several Oakland residents who make their living recycling discarded bottles and cans. The flick offers an in debt look at the live of the people who live off what most of us discard.
After thefilm the audience will have a chance to hear from the filmmaker about his insights and experience. After the film will be a series of testimonies from some of the people profiled as well as from others who recycle for a living as well as from grassroots organizations that work regularly with the recycling community. There will be a networking event beginning at 4:30 and a a reception afterwards.
