Encore screenings of popular films from Verzió 15
February 7 – March 21

Our annual encore screening series, Re-Verzió, which has been typically held in the last cold weeks of winter – supplies the perfect atmosphere for watching movies and gathering in warm places.
The upcoming, 4th event will show the winner of Verzió 15's Audience Award, a Hungarian documentary which was also nominated for the European Film Award:

WELCOME TO SODOM

The new documentary by the directors of A German Life (directed by Christian Krönes - Florian Weigensamer, Austria - Ghana, 2018, 90min, English, English and Hungarian subtitles)

After the screening, Logan Strenchock, CEU’s Sustainability Officer, will ask our guests, Gergely Simon from Greenpeace Hungary and Ervin Tihanyi, head of electronic waste handling at Intermetal Recycling, about their experiences during their visit to "Sodom".

Synopsis:
Agbogbloshie, Accra is the largest electronic waste dump in the world. About 6,000 women, men and children live and work here. They call it "Sodom". Every year roughly 250,000 tons of computers, smartphones, air conditioning tanks and other devices from a faraway, electrified and digitalized world end up here, illegally. The interwoven destinies of the protagonists unravel in this complex story of an apocalyptic society. The trailer is available here.
