The throwaways by THE THROWAWAYS tells the story of homeless filmmaker, activist and co-director Ira McKinley, who channels his experience of living on the streets through the lens of a video camera. By using his unique perspective, Ira aims to pull the curtain back for viewers and expose how the current economic crisis is having a devastating effect on those who are in greatest need. A gritty, firsthand look at a reality most would rather turn away from, THE THROWAWAYS challenges viewers to bear witness and confront the daily struggles and hopes of those living on the fringes of a society that has rejected and forgotten them.
