garbage dreams logoLaunching nation-wide on October 15th, the Garbage Dreams‘ Tour is a community-based screening campaign aimed at demonstrating the true value of trash and the cost of throwing out the expertise of the Zaballeen, Egypt’s “garbage people,” who recycle 80% of everything they collect.

Get involved by hosting a screening with the community screening package!

“Garbage Dreams is a moving story of young men searching for ways to eke out a living for their families and facing tough choices as they try to do the right thing for the planet. Mai Iskander guides us into a ‘garbage village,’ a place so different from our own, and yet the choices they face there are so hauntingly familiar. Ultimately, Garbage Dreams makes a compelling case that modernization does not always equal progress.”
-Al Gore

10% of all proceeds from the Garbage Dreams Tour will go to The Spirit of Youth Association, a non-governmental organization of Zaballeen, that run the Recycling School profiled in Garbage Dreams.

Watch the trailer and sign up to host a screening in your community today.
