Daughter of a Garbageman - The PIT
March 30, 2019 - New York

DAUGHTER OF A GARBAGEMAN is a tale of Maureen Langan's 1970's upbringing in New Jersey, in which her Irish mother and Bronx-born father, a New York City sanitation worker, told her to work hard, get educated and life would reward her. But is that true? How do you tell a girl to read and write when sex tapes lead to fame and fortune? When the star of The Apprentice can become the president? In DAUGHTER OF A GARBAGEMAN, Langan lambasts today's "reality culture," while revealing her parents' strengths, struggles and secrets, as well as her own, and how that made her who she is today. Maureen taps into the hearts and frustrations of hard-working people everywhere who wonder if they, too, were raised wrong. Directed by David Ford
