(The AmeriCan Dream)
|Crew: ||Producers: Robert Sarnoff|
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.
