Eriss Khajira grew up on the largest dumpsite of East Africa: the Dandora dumpsite. Tens of thousands of people live on and around this dumpsite, scavenging through the waste of Nairobi’s residents. Khajira goes back to the place of her youth and she portrays five dumpsite inhabitants. The result is a touching and shocking documentary that shows the strengths, the sorrows and the dreams of her slum neighbors. Dusty Bin Dreams tells the story of African poverty from the inside: a story of hope, friendship, despair and betrayal.
