The Throwaways is a timely and provocative look at the impact of mass incarceration and police brutality on black men in America. Told through the eyes of homeless ex-felon Ira McKinley, the film documents his struggle to bring positive changes to his community in inner-city Albany, NY. As he strives to give voice to the people on the streets fighting for survival, McKinley confronts the stigma of being formerly incarcerated.  More than an illumination of marginalized people in trouble, this film is a call to action, a narrative of engaging in the fight for justice.

"The Throwaways courageously explores the most pressing racial justice issue of our time: the mass incarceration and profiling of poor people of color. "
Michelle Alexander, author, The New Jim Crow
