The Pajarito Mesa is a breathtakingly beautiful but perpetually trash-ridden swath of desert overlooking Albuquerque, New Mexico. It is also home to over 250 families living without access to basic services. Making something out of nothing, residents of Pajarito build their lives from the scraps that others have thrown away. They hope that through their hard work, they will see change in their lives and their community. Una Nueva Tierra traces the struggles of three families as they recycle what others have cast off while they themselves are cast to society’s margins, unable to make even the most basic progress due to their poverty.
