Shocking TRASH

Video collaboration set in Naples, Italy amidst the Naples Sanitation Crisis.

In 2008 the landfills in Naples had filled up and the sanitation workers refused to pick up the trash. City squares, parks, beaches, and side streets became dumps. Filmmaker Tomaso Cardille and Naples native Alberto Polo approached Adrian Kondratowicz to collaborate on a short video to highlight the crisis. The team went around the city and re-bagged the garbage shocking the residents with an alternative form of art therapy providing them with temporary visual relief from the overflow of garbage throughout Napoli.
