To survive, people do anything, like crush cans to sell as metal.
We are used to seeing, even in the richest cities of the western world, people who rummage in garbage bins to find objects to recover and resell, but this scene taken in Cuba has its own originality: the object was “invented” by the boy to crush cans (and then store it more easily), and especially his work, with children and other people who observe it without help, as if the activity had need special experience … and expertise. Effective choice of wide angle to include in the frame the many elements of the scene.(rewiew by Carlo Traina)
