Welcome to Sodom

Documentary Film, AT 2018, 92 min, eOmdU

One of the world’s largest dumping grounds for electronic scrap is found in Ghana in West Africa. A toxic dump, on which roughly 6,000 women, men, and children live and work. Sodom is what they call this place. With stunning visual power, the film follows the everyday movements of several inhabitants who with creativity and virtually unbelievable power brave the living conditions of this monstrous site where no one should stay for long.
