The Mountain Thief

via Mountain Thief

Saw The Mountain Thief last night at the Vancouver Asian Film Festival - an amazing film!   Shot on location in the world's largest garbage-collecting town called Promised Land and Urban, Payatas in the Philippines.  The film's actors are real life residents of the town, who participated in a series of free acting workshops called The Mount Hope Project which was organized by the filmmakersStunning images of life as a 'garbage scavenger,' literally living and working atop giant mountains of garbage.
