The trailer for Garbage Dreams which will debut at SXSW 2009. Filmed over four years, Garbage Dreams follows three teenage boys Ð Adham, a bright precocious 17 year old; Osama, a charming impish 16 year old; Nabil, a shy artistic 18 year old Ð born into the trash trade and growing up in the world's largest garbage village, a ghetto located on the outskirts of Cairo. It is a world folded onto itself, an impenetrable labyrinth of narrow roadways camouflaged by trash; it is the home to 60,000 'Zaballeen'(or 'Zabbaleen'), arabic for Garbage Dreams.

When their community is suddenly faced with the globalization of its trade, each of the teenage boys is forced to make choices that will impact his future and the survival of his community.
