In Sodom, one lives on the rubbish, on the spoils of the Western world, on what, through dizzying obsolescence, no longer serves the needs of digital communication. The electronic remains, technological skeletons of a society of excesses, are dumped into a huge artificial lake where water gave way to copper as a source of survival. There is the biggest electronic waste bin in the world in Ghana, in Agbogbloshie. Six thousand men, women and children are living and working there, totally exposed to the highly toxic effects of mercury, lead and cadmium discharged by the 250,000 tonnes of materials that Europe exports illegally to Africa each year. They call it Sodom, a fire monster that feeds and kills. (Gisela Leal)

In Porto/Post/Doc 2018, the first screening of this film will be followed by a roundtable discussion with Vitor Saraiva (ENTRAJUDA - Banco de Equipamentos), Rui Berkemeier (Especialista em resíduos - ZERO), and Mercês Ferreira (Agência Portuguesa do Ambiente).
