Garbage Dreams (Not Rated)

Arabic with English subtitles

Teens Adham, Nabil and Osama are forced to find new ways to support themselves and their families when their jobs as under-compensated garbage collectors are replaced in director Mai Iskander's documentary. Born and raised in Mokottom -- aka "Garbage City" in Cairo -- the boys had little choice but to join the Zaballeen, who've cleaned up the city for 100-plus years. But foreign contractors are disrupting all they've ever known.
