Review Fix 2012 Tribeca Film Festival Coverage: The Landfill Review: Smart and Savvy
When people think of garbage, they usually visualize messy streets, dirty sidewalks and off course dumps, or landfills as they are called today. “The Landfill,” a short film at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival that talks about how solid waste should be treated as a living organism that can be used as resource potential.
This fact may seem strange but is very true because there are people who dispense many objects in their everyday lives in which to them turns to garbage but in reality can be turned into important and useful commodities.
What will gain interest with this short film is how we view the landfill and how the workers describe the different machinery in which the waste is dispensed in as well as where the waste ends up- and what happens to it. Directors Jessica Edwards and Gary Huswit do a fantastic job of showing the audience that a landfill is an important part of how waste is treated and the positive effects it can have toward the earth.
Overall, “The Landfill” is a smart short film that teaches you not only the value of waste, but how you can conserve
it so that it can be useful to you.
Although garbage may not attract an audience, this short film definitely will, along with an important message that will teach the value that waste has to offer and that a landfill is not only a dump, but that it can become beneficial to make garbage out into important use.
