Gringos in the Garbage

A documentary

Warren and Jess Rothenburger met in 2009 when Warren was researching The Go-Away Bird in Rwanda, volunteering with a group led by Jess. You can read all about that here. Since then they have participated in many other volunteer experiences, always looking for a way to get a more authentic experience of what it means to live in a developing nation and to truly consult local people about what they want- if anything- from outside help.

Their most recent experiences in Nicaragua compelled them to make their first foray into the world of documentary making.
