‘Dirty Feathers’ El Paso Trailer For Berlin Premiere

February 25, 2021

Dirty Feathers, Carlos Alfonso Corral’s feature documentary about El Paso's homeless, will debuts at the 2021 Berlin International Film Festival Panorama program. Carlos Alfonso Corral, Roberto Minervini, Denise Ping Lee, and Denise Dorado produced. Slingshot Films is handling world sales.

The documentary chronicles the residents of a homeless shelter in El Paso, TX.

With two homeless lovers’ journey as the through-line, the story weaves in and out of an overwhelmed shelter and a forsaken landscape with fervent echoes of the unheard and neglected: a grieving father who lost his child is paralyzed by un-shakable guilt; a veteran living under a bridge recalls his past glory serving the very country that has long abandoned him; and a 16 year old girl who has seemingly transcended trauma embraces life on the streets with a holy righteousness, becoming the haunting conscience of the film.
