Directed by Manfred Kirchheimer | 2014
“While Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen and Spike Lee are among the most celebrated of these, few have filmed the city as loyally, or as marvelously, as Manfred Kirchheimer.”
—Eric Hynes, The New York Times

Never before shown in the US, and screening on the heels of its world premiere in Germany, Manfed Kirchheimer returns to BAMcinématek with a poetic documentary portrait of the men and women in New York City who collect bottles and cans to recycle them for a mere nickel each. Giving a voice, a face, and a name to an often ignored population, Kirchheimer creates a beautifully humanist work that also serves as a love letter to the city, suffused with stunning imagery reminiscent of his earlier work in Stations of the Elevated and Claw. Canners continues to affirm Kirchheimer as part of a long, rich tradition of great leftist documentarians like Emile De Antonio and Leo Hurwitz, one of his mentors.
