MOVIES THAT MATTERTuesday 19 February
Welcome to Sodom
Christian Krönes, AT 2018
It’s one of the most toxic places on earth: the enormous landfill Agbogbloshie in Ghana, the largest electronic waste dump in the world, containing over 250,000 tons of electronic waste. About 6,000 women, men and children live and work here. They call it Sodom, after the sinful city in the bible. Despite the apocalyptic nature of this place, it is growing each day and provides a steady income for the poor.
Movies That Matter On Tour is a spin-off of the annual Movies that Matter Festival. From October until May film theatres in seventeen Dutch cities host a one-off screening of festival favourites. Each month a controversial film or documentary in combination with introductions or Q&A’s with inspiring guests.
