Who knew that people could love their garbage so much that they grow angry when it is taken from them?
The film isn't easy to watch, but its portrait of perseverance and ecological commitment is enlightening.
Expertly weaving personal fears, family tensions and political action (the zabbaleen donâ(TM)t whine; they strive to modernize), Garbage Dreams records the tremblings of a culture at a crossroads.
The film's most amazing character is the fantastic garbage town of Mokattam itself, with its winding alleyways piled high with trash, its buildings half exposed, riddled with crevices stuffed with bags of refuse.
Timely documentary sheds new light on the age-old practice of recycling.
In Garbage Dreams, Mai Iskander's handsomely shot and intermittently fascinating look at Cairo's Zaballeen community of trash collectors, the filmmaker documents an entire population faced with extinction.
In this compelling documentary, director Mai Iskander follows three teenage Egyptian boys who eke out a living by collecting garbage, but dream of finding their way to a cleaner, easier way of life.
Successfully shows another side of society that feels foreign and unfamiliar at first, but one that's infinitely more interesting when put into context of our own lives.
Garbage Dreams's images have the unsettling primal power of a dystopian sci-fi movie come to life.
Absolutely fascinating story on how a "recycling" system came about in Cairo out of poverty. Essentially the poor recycled so that they could get a few pennies to make it through their daily lives. Incredible.
