Cairo Garbage (Screenings)

Cairo Garbage 
Denmark, 2009, 55 min.
Director Mikala Krogh

Language: Arabic
Russian subtitles

Once upon a time there was a city that was neat and tidy, and which was home to only 12 million people. Today, however, Cairo has a population estimated at 20 million. Garbage is piling up in the streets and the piles are growing. Everyone in Cairo has his or her views on garbage but nobody knows what to do about it. Italian garbage disposal operators are brought in to tackle the city's waste problems and to teach the city dwellers rational garbage habits. »Cairo Garbage« is a portrait of the city community seen through its garbage.

*In the event of bad weather, the screening will be held in a hall. In the event of chilly weather, there are blankets on hand and in the event of rain, there are a limited number of umbrellas.
