CITIES ON SPEED - CAIRO GARBAGE

Denmark, 2009 (MIFF 2010, Our Space)

Director: Mikala Krogh

Cairo Garbage

With 10,000 tonnes of new garbage produced every day, Cairo is drowning in its own waste. Even the ‘garbage people' who for years have made a living from the discarded goods can't keep up with the pace of waste production. Enter Italian contractors and trash-eating pigs to help solve the problem.
