The Garbage Gang
Kosovo, September 2008)
In the outskirts of the Kosovar city of Gjakova (Djakovica in Serbian), a group of Roma kids live with their families in a slum built over a garbage dump. Moved after the war, they survive by sorting through and selling recyclable trash. Neither Kosovar or Serbian, this ethnic group has always been shunned. These Roma children only know life in the dump, a poisoned and diseased playground.
