The Trash The Trash

Douglas Reese's autobiographic documentary about his own mother's fall from middle class comfort to a trailer park lifestyle. Incorporating home video footage from 1993 to 2011 and splicing it with contemporary interviews, the film captures a scattered, sometimes ambiguous, look into mental illness, stigmatized societies, and mother-child relationships.
