Festival TV 2018 | WELCOME TO SODOM
Ghana's capital, Accra, houses the largest electronic waste dump in the world. Every year, some 250,000 tons of old computers, smartphones, and appliances from a distant, digital world end up here — illegally. Six thousand adults and children live and work at the dump, breaking the electronics apart, heating them to extract the valuable metals they contain, and breathing the poisonous smoke that billows out. The district's name is Agbogbloshie, but they call it SODOM. Directors Christian Krönes and Florian Weigensamer about their film WELCOME TO SODOM.
