Movies that Matter #2: Welcome to Sodom in New Metropolis
31 januari - 19:30 - 21:30
Agbogloshi, Accra is the largest electronic waste dump in the world. About 6.000 women, men and children live and work here. They call it SODOM. Every year about 250.000 tons of sorted out computers, smartphones, air conditions tanks and other devices from a far away electrified and digitalized world end up here. Illegally. Cleverly interwoven, the destinies of the various protagonists unravel the complex story of this apocalyptic society. Their very personal inner voices allow a deep insight into life and work at this place – and of Sodom itself. And you can be sure – it will most probably be the final destination of the smartphone, the computer you buy today.
