Welcome to Sodom | School Screening
Documentary / Florian Weigensamer, Christian Krönes / Austria / 2018 / 92 min / OV with ST / Age rating: 6
At the Agbogbloshie electronic-waste rubbish dump in Ghana, people twist up electric cables into tangled balls and set them alight in order to extract valuable metals from them. With toxic fires far and wide – hell on Earth. The "Welcome to Sodom" documentary permits the inner voices of those living there to be heard.
Filmtalk: The electronic waste dump in Ghana's capital Accra has serious effects on people and the environment. How is linked to us and what can we change about it?
