synopsis
Living on the fringe, collecting bottles and cans, these men and women of all races and creeds seek redemption, a nickle at a time, all while saving the planet. A graohic image of The Pacific Gyre filled with plastics, sludge and debris is juxtaposed against these foot soldiers as they dodge traffic and biting insults. "I could make you a five-tier wedding cake, now I'm out of work", Richard emotes. "I'm doing this to survive." "Survival of the fittest", his partner, Rafael adds. Their faces are worried and worn. The hard, arduous daily routine has carved deep, permanent lines filled with street.Studs Terkel Meets Dorothea Lange in The Longest Day.

director
Robert Sarnoff is an Artist, Author, Editorial Cartoonist and Educator. Over the past six years he has married these arts, turning to film. His movies have received A Best Docudrama Award, and were Official Selections in several International Film Festivals. They have been screened at The South Street Seaport Musem, The Queens Museum Biennial, and are in The Archives of The National Coalition For The Homeless and The Queens Cinema Collection. On November 5th 2008 The New York Times featured Mr. Sarnoff in a half page article complete with dramatic photo. A few days later, when addressing The Queens International Film Festival Paying Tribute to his Socially Relevant Movies, he said to the audience, "I didn't realize I had so many fans. The newspaper sold out! Lucky for President Obama that he won the election and appeared on the cover." Denis Hamill of The New York Daily News featured Robert Sarnoff in his November 17th 2009 column complete with a photo of THE ROMEOWS. He is presently completing his latest film, "GREEN The AmeriCan Dream".
