Buried Dead Mountain

IF/Then Short Documentary Program | 2019 (International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam)

At what seemingly appears as a large mountain, there lies over 3 million tons of waste that has been buried and tucked away from the public eye. While Chonburi has developed and become the central base for driving the Thai economy, this dumpsite has also been accumulating trash for 40 years. It has grown as tall as a mountain and is continually expanidng and elevating, with a notorious stench that stretches across several kilometers.
