A Fistful of Rubbish

David Regos 14:05, Spain

A Western, environmental documentary, A Fistful of Rubbish is set in the Tabernas Desert in Spain – Europe’s unique desert. An area known for being the backdrop of many classic Western films, sadly is being trashed. But now, a group of locals are forming a posse and taking things into their own hands.
