CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER     MPTV Community Cinema: Garbage Dreams

Welcome to the world's largest garbage village located on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt. The garbage people recycle 80 percent of the trash they collect--far more than other recycling initiatives. But now a multi-national corporation threatens their livelihood. Three teenage boys born into the business are followed, as they are forced to make choices that will impact the survival of their community.

Discussion Guests:
Rick Meyers, Recycling Specialist, City of Milwaukee DPW
George T. Stone, Ph.D., Department of Physical Science MATC.

The screening will take place at Discovery World's Innovation Theatre at 500 N. Harbor Drive in Milwaukee. The event is free and open to the public.
Discovery World Parking is just $1.00 for cinema patrons.

(Broadcast date for Garbage Dreams: Spring 2010 on MPTV)
