Just before our annual Christmas break, we couldn't resist taking the convertible for a wintry spin through Vienna. On the first day of shooting for our new documentary MÜLL & POESIE we put the convertible top up, took the garbage truck for a ride, and finally came to a stop at Karlsplatz with the carousel of found objects. 

POETRY IN WASTE is a documentary road movie in which Elisabeth von Samsonow examines garbage as the excrement of our society and accompanies the manifold activities of the collectors, sorters and transporters of waste management in a philosophically pointed way.
