Please join us!

A Compost Movie and Discussion Night: Garbage Dreams
Thursday, January 14th, 7pm
Fee: $5/person

Join the Queens Compost Project for a screening of the film Garbage Dreams with a short discussion of waste issues to follow.  Garbage Dreams follows three teenage boys born into the trash trade and growing up in the world's largest garbage village on the outskirts of Cairo.  It is the home to 60,000 Zabaleen, Arabic for "garbage people."  Far ahead of any modern "Green" initiatives, the Zabaleen survive by recycling 80 percent of the garbage they collect.  When their community is suddenly faced with the globalization of its trade, each of the teenage boys is forced to make choices that will impact his future and the survival of his community. 

Screening will take place in the Queens Botanical Garden auditorium; entrance is on Dahlia Avenue, through after-hours gate behind the Visitor and Administration building.
