Repair Cafe presents: SCRAP



A feature documentary by Stacey Tennenbaum

Discover the vast and strangely beautiful places where things go to die and meet the people who collect, restore, and recycle the world’s scrap. SCRAP scratches beneath flaking paint and rusting metal to reveal the beauty and pathos in the ugliness we leave behind. SCRAP is a love letter to the things we use in our daily lives. This cinematic documentary tells the stories of people who each have a connection to objects that have reached their ‘end of life’. Together their stories convey a deeper environmental and human message about our relationship to things, the sadness we feel at their eventual loss, and the joy of we can find in giving them a new purpose. The film raises awareness about the fate of the things we use and explores how artists, and other creative thinkers, can be a part of giving new life to the things we discard.


Repair Cafe

Repair Cafe is a small community event with worldwide origins where neighborhood folks who have a knack for fixing, known as Repair Coaches, come together with folks who have a Broken but Beloved item to get repaired - for free! Repair Cafes started in Amsterdam in 2009 and a local New Orleans chapter started July of 2022. We aim to keep your stuff out of the landfill and re-approach ownership over our items, trying to tinker, diagnose, retrofit and repair instead of replace. We currently host two Repair Cafes a month at the Broadmoor Improvement Association at 3900 General Taylor. The funds from this screening will help us provide warm food and drinks for our volunteers, print flyers and put ads in the papers to reach as much of the New Orleans community as possible. Thank you for your support!!
