Trash is Cash

A participatory film documentary about environment and recycling solutions in Nairobi’s slums realized in partnership with Formada, a youth self help group from the slum of Dandora - Nairobi. Trash is Cash is an itinerant documentary, made during the director’s eight-month stay inside the slum of Dandora. From the visual reality of shacks and crowded roads, you will get to know the youth who are living there, understand their needs and share the solutions they come up without any outside help. The innovative force connected with the use of the waste as a source of alternative energy will succeed. The positive results are that recycling creates a source of income for a big number of people in a slum where joblessness and surplus trash cause a major part of the problems. In this age when pollution and the deforestation are destroying our planet, from the slum comes a very interesting and innovative lesson

Produced by Cultural Video Foundation and Formada Youth Self Help Group, Kenya 2008
