The First Feature Film Ever Made About the Hidden Lives of the Zabbaleen People

WINNER: Dubai International Film Festival Silver Muhr Documentary Award for Best Documentary


 
 



Enter the extraordinary world of seven-year-old Marina.  Through her magical eyes, you'll be led into the never-before-seen Muqqattam garbage recycling village in Cairo, Egypt. Marina spends her days riding flying elephants, befriending mystical pigeons, and dodging out of control butcher knives -- she even confronts an evil witch. Despite common misconceptions, all this can happen in a documentary. Marina of the Zabbaleen transforms a squalid landfill village into a beautiful, dream-like portrait of family, childhood, and spirituality.
