Synopsis

WASTE FINAL DESTINATION IN MALDIVES

In 1991 the Maldivian government launched a project for the creation of an artificial atoll that has become one of the world’s largest trash islands and risks contaminating the pristine beauty of a delicate ecosystem, THILAFUSHI.

Experts explain the waste management operations in the area and the methods to contain one of the most critical environmental issues facing the country. The film is part of B-side (http://docabout.eu/bside/), a platform for creating an audiovisual map of the hidden and degraded side of the world’s natural paradises.
