Discover the vast and strangely beautiful places where things go to die and meet the people who collect, restore, and recycle the worldís scrap. SCRAP is a love letter to the things we use in our daily lives. This cinematic documentary tells the stories of people who have deep connections to objects that have reached their end of life.

The stories convey a deeper environmental and human message about our relationship to things, the sadness we feel at their eventual loss, and the joy that we find in giving them a new purpose. By showing discarded goods in a new way, the film raises awareness about the fate of the things we use and explores how artists and other creative thinkers can be part of finding usefulness in the things we discard.

"A beautifully filmed elegy on the metals we discard, and their innate capacity for renewal and transformation." - Jennifer Baichwal, Director of Manufactured Landscapes

"SCRAP is the kind of documentary that invites you into its world, to look closer at something seemingly ordinary which suddenly becomes intriguing, and perhaps even a bit profound. Surprisingly relaxing, contemplative and deeply human, SCRAP casts a spell as we watch these resourceful people give new life to old objects in creative, even affectionate ways."- Cate Marquis, Alliance of Women Film Journalists
