Day of Light
Who knew that garbage could be so beautiful? This piece documents a day in the life in the trash dump community of Managua (the capital of Nicaragua). This film was shot from sunrise to sunset in one day by six filmmakers. It is beautifully filmed and really gives you an idea of how such joy and happiness can emerge from a slum community. Wherever there is sunlight, there is hope for a better tomorrow.
