Have you ever wondered what happens to the bags of clothes you donate to Goodwill every year? Secondhand Pepe is a 24-min tri-lingual documentary film that sheds light on the unbeknowst used clothing business in Haiti. Chronicling the process and history of secondhand shopping from its conception with peddling immigrant Jews in the early 1900’s, to the vital role it plays in Haiti’s current day economy. This film opens a platform to discuss whether this is a positive thing or another way of keeping countries dependant on resources outside of their own land thus never being able to create independent local industries/economies.
