Abstract:

The Salt Mines documents the lives of Sara, Gigi and Giovanna, three Latino transvestites who for years lived on the streets of Manhattan and supported their drug addictions through prostitution. They formed temporary homes inside broken garbage trucks kept next to the salt deposits used in the winter to melt the snow. The three friends share their makeshift home, "The Salt Mines," with a varied community of homeless people. Candid interviews raise issues of sexual identity, personal history and dreams. We follow their lives day and night until their community is closed and sealed by the city, forcing everyone to disperse into uncertain futures.
