Why Watch? Every year, Tropfest circles the entire globe with short films, launching careers and introducing new filmmaking talents. It’s a uniquely global film festival, and the most recent New York City edition announced Josh Leake‘s documentary Emptys as its winner.

It’s easy to see why. The movie followers street canners, men and women who make a living solely by collecting empty recyclables. The subject matter is compelling, but the stories shine beyond the obvious, surface-level appeal. Leake is a strong, fresh voice who deserves to be heard.

What will it cost? Only 7 minutes.
