This film is part of the Hispanic Film Festival.

Shot over the course of seven years, 2011-2018 in Nicaragua, Clean Hands is a feature-length documentary which tells the story of the Lopez family surviving against the backdrop of Central America’s largest garbage dump, La Chureca and beyond. It is about family, extreme poverty, the hope and innocence of children, rescue and salvation, and the challenges we all face. The four Lopez children are ages 6 to 10 when we first meet them but, unlike their parents, they don’t fully grasp what they don’t have. As opportunities arise, will they be able to succeed leaving the only home they've ever known?


Run Time: 1 Hour 38 Min
