Cities on Speed: Cairo Garbage

Today Cairo has a population estimated at 20 million and their garbage piles up in the streets. Nobody can keep up with the speed at which the city is growing. Everyone in Cairo has his views on garbage- but nobody knows what to do about it. We meet the restaurateur who is losing his patrons because the pavement outside his establishments is covered with piles of garbage. We follow a family in a garbage village, sorting our garbage for a living, trying to use everything in order to save money for their sons wedding. We meet the Italian garbage disposal operators brought in to get grips with the garbage and to teach the city dwellers good garbage habits. We discover how difficult it is to change one of the biggest cities in the world. Cairo/ Garbage is a portrait of the Cairo community seen through its garbage
