Most of us don’t think much about recycling. We rinse our yogurt containers, crush our milk cartons, and break down our boxes. But once our trash hits the curb in a blue or a brown or a green bin, we forget about it.
Welcome to Minh Khai, Vietnam – where plastic from all over the world finds new life.
This film documents the experiences of Minh Khai’s residents as they wrestle with the blessings and curses of an empire built on our trash.
Directed by Yutao Chen (Vietnam)
