Garbage man

A depressed sanitation worker wants to quit. But when a curse from a raccoon turns him into an ever growing trash magnet threatening to swallow up everything he loves, he must confront his fate and become the Garbage Man. Alan Miller’s 8-minute short is a charming film based around the director’s childhood obsession with his local refuse collectors. A light-hearted look at depression, filmmaker Miller centres his film around the heavy concept of a man frustrated with his place in the world, but makes it light, accessible and engaging through humour and warmth.
