Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Official Selection at Cannes, Berlin and Toronto Film Festivals, Chop Shop is the second feature from internationally acclaimed director Ramin Bahrani (Man Push Cart, Goodbye Solo), winner of the Independent Spirit Award ¿Someone to Watch¿ and recently hailed ¿the new great American film director¿ by eminent critic Roger Ebert.

Alejandro, a tough and ambitious Latino street orphan on the verge of adolescence, lives and works in an auto-body repair shop in a sprawling junkyard on the outskirts of Queens, New York. In this chaotic world of adults, young Alejandro struggles to make a better life for himself and his 16-year-old sister, Isamar.

Intimate, heartbreaking and yet ultimately hopeful, Chop Shop is a portrait of a young boy navigating his way through a chaotic adult world. Set in a stunning and unique location, it is subtle and simple, but tells a profound story about the people who live, work, and dream there.
