[⏵] A chance for waste: a dialogue-free comedy of the grotesque in which the happiness of a drop-out community depends on the future of a rubbish tip. A group of drop-outs has had enough of the throwaway mentality of capitalism and declares war on surfeit and waste. They have built up a new existence on the dirty outskirts of society and now live in catacombs under a rubbish tip. With such a ready supply on hand, everything is recycled in order to live autonomously underground. On the one hand, this is illegal, but the sustainability crew enjoy living among giant rubber ducks and discarded statues of Karl Marx. But when a posse of overeager police come across them, their nice life seems to have reached its expiry date.
