Email a Friend

Directors Jon Alpert and Matt O’Neill discuss their Academy Award-nominated documentary short “Redemption.” They’re also joined by Susan, who is featured in the film, about New York City’s growing “canning” profession—more and more men and women survive redeeming bottles and cans they collect from curbs, garbage cans and apartment complexes. “Redemption” is an unexpected and intimate look at New York City’s post-industrial gleaners, struggling at the edge of society. "Redemption" is playing at IFC Center through February 14.
