The inhabitants of the Mumbaian slums prefer to do ‘ their thing’ outside. A sewer as we know it doesn't exist there, so most people drop their dropping on the nearby beach. ‘There are only 4 toilet blocks for 25.000 people’, explains one of the residents. ‘When it’s finally your turn, the day is almost over!’. And what is the outcome of this problem? Exactly, a beach full of crap.

vpro Metropolis was a video project by Dutch broadcast organisation vpro, that ran from 2008 to 2015. Metropolis is made by a global collective of young filmmakers and TV producers, reporting on remarkable stories from their own country/city. We made a trip around the globe on one single issue: from local beauty ideals to Elvis impersonators, to what's it like being gay, or an outcast or a dog in different cultures.
