Basurero screens at New York Shorts on Oct 5-31

Basurero an Official Selection and screening all of October 5th-31st at the New York Shorts International Film Festival.

Celebrating 10 years New York Shorts International Film Festival. Over 300 films will be part the 2021 Official Selection, making New York Shorts the largest short film festival in America on the East Coast. The festival has established a tradition of discovering filmmakers who have gone on to receive industry accolades.

New York Shorts is committed to bring the theatrical experience back to New York City. The festival has established a reputation amplifying underrepresented voices in short-form cinema from around the globe.

Here are some words from Asian Movie Pulse by Adam John Symchuk ❤Basurero (Dump) follows an impoverished fisherman named Bong. With a large family to support, Bong becomes desperate for money and turns to dumping a body in the water for pay. However, the grim task does little to alleviate his situation, and he begins to fear a fate similar to the “trash” he has been paid to throw away… It succeeds through avoidance of portraying actual acts of violence and instead focuses on how the human rights violations can affect individuals.”
