SHINERS delves into the lives of shoe shiners around the world giving you an insider’s view of this often overlooked profession. Travel from Tokyo to La Paz, New York, Toronto and Sarajevo, to meet the men and women who make their living cleaning our shoes. Shiners is a character-driven documentary which introduces you to the people who do this job and allows you to see the world through their eyes. From class relations to the importance of job satisfaction in our lives, Shiners touches on topics which are of concern to us all. People around the world have turned to shoe shining to provide for themselves and their families. These are their stories. Enter their universe. You’ll never look at a shoe shiner the same way again.

«Shiners is nothing shy of a complete re-evaluation of what labour means in the modern world...It does what great documentaries, hell, great cinema, is supposed to do: Open your mind, fill your heart.» — Kurt Halfyard, Screen Anarchy

«Full of poignant tales and offbeat characters, this investigation of the shoe-shining profession is sure to be one of [Hot Docs] hits… The results are informative, intriguing and, on occasion, deeply touching.» — Kate Taylor, The Globe and Mail
