Salvage is a feature-length documentary about the city dump in Yellowknife, Canada.

In Yellowknife, the remote capitol of the Northwest Territories, the town dump is the city’s most popular and notorious manmade attraction, mined by a colorful community of thrifty locals.

But the new city administration is determined to see it tamed, and the battle for Yellowknife’s identity is on.
