Documentary 'Something Better to Come' broadcasted at Goethe Institute Brussels on 7 May

On May the 7th the documentary 'Something Better to Come' by Hanna Polak will be broadcasted at the Goethe Institute in Brussels. An exceptional documentary also underlining the need from a human perspective to keep moving forward in environmental issues, as with stopping large scale landfilling in the world, starting within Europe.

Yula lives on landfill site

The documentary is about a girl Yula who lives on a landfill site near Moscow. In this film Hanna Polak follows Yula and her companions over a 14-year period. Yula lives on Europe’s biggest landfill situated less than 20 kilometres from Moscow’s city centre. On this unearthly place, trucks and forklifts drive to and from shifting an endless supply of garbage. Together with her mother, a handful of other children, drunkards and outcasts, Yula spends her days foraging in the filth for food, for shelter material, and for something to do.

Panel discussion

The event is aiming to attract European decision makers and a broad audience of stakeholders working in the field of human rights and environmental issues. The panel discussion after the film has the objective to share ideas and thoughts how to do better and what could be done by EU policy makers to pave the way to a world – also inside Europe – were human rights are more respected, in this case by changing also the environment for the better. The film has a relationship with our work on the circular economy package and therefore we would be honoured if you would register for the film.
