The Salvage Prince

Top of page

Three intrepid individuals undertake the restoration of an old tugboat destined for the scrapyard. Through great inventiveness, they slowly rebuild it from recycled and scavenged materials. From a rusted hulk, it becomes a home, albeit without the luxuries. This documentary is as much an account of their life on and around the tug as a lyrical record of how they restored its battered hide. The film says a lot about innovative problem-solving and alternative lifestyles.

1979, 22 min 35 s
