Synopsis

Injection drug users (IDUs) are often depicted in film and popular media as fiends in pursuit of their next high, defined by their relentless addiction and fear of withdrawal. They are reduced to sensationalist images and easy stereotypes. Copper takes a more nuanced approach and examines the individuals behind the drug, showing their every dimension without judgment or prejudice, and presenting the addiction as just an aspect of their daily lives. Scrapping metal is one of the most reliable paychecks available to the homeless, and the participants in Copper take great pride in that work to provide for themselves and sometimes their families. Finding copper, or brass, or any of the top-dollar metals, requires a patient eye and a strong work ethic.
