SCRAP LIFE (Film)

This film is a glamourous praise to the recycling process and the
cycle of life. It takes place at a scrapyard. Reflections in the metal dance around and tell us that there is a second life ahead for the
hard bent material.

Absurd, full of subtle humour and beautiful images from the scrapyard, we see the workers and the dancers co-starring in this Scrap cabaret. Small scrap babies are born, getting older and later reach full bloom as scrap queens.

The music is composed from sounds recorded at the scrapyard.
