Salvage

Doc / Feature

Salvage is a documentary about the city dump in Yellowknife, Canada. Yellowknife, the remote capitol of the Northwest Territories, is home to one of the last and largest dumps in North America open to the public for salvaging. Mined by a colorful community of thrifty locals, it has long played a central role in the city’s civic and social life. But government bureaucrats are determined to see it tamed, and the battle for Yellowknife’s identity is on.
