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.”
