Cinemom Screening: Trash Dance


Cinemom screenings are special parent-baby movie shows on Friday afternoons. The movie a 14 Pews will be specially adapted for this purpose. One ticket grants entry to two seats (one adult, one baby), the lights will be kept on dim rather than totally out so that you can still find toys, the volume will not be as loud and there will be a space to feed and change your child.

Choreographer Allison Orr finds beauty and grace in garbage trucks and in the unseen men and women who pick up trash. Filmmaker Andrew Garrison follows Orr as she rides along with Austin sanitation workers on their daily routes to observe and later convince them to perform a most unlikely spectacle. On an abandoned airport runway, two dozen trash collectors and their trucks deliver — for one night only — a stunningly beautiful and moving performance in front of an audience of thousands who are awed to discover how in the world a garbage truck can "dance."
