Title: Some Bad News
Directed by: Marek Skrzecz POLAND
The knowledge about modern Africa is very limited. In my opinion colonialism still exists in hidden form. Developed countries are picking from Africa the most precious things like gold, diamonds and cobalt. In exchange, they send them the worst - tons of plastic and electronic waste. The invisible victims of this cynical practice are African people who bear on their shoulders a problems of the modern world. This is a short story story from African landfill called "Toxic City". Local people burning here old refrigerators, TV sets and computers. They manage to recover a small amount of precious metal which can be sold.
