The Scavengers

World premiere
A film by Pascal Greco

In Hong Kong, today, many elderly people are left alone, abandoned by their families, with insufficient retirement to cover their vital needs and expenses: rent, food or medical expenses. The state, totally resigned to an aging population, does not help them. To meet their needs, they collect all day long paper, cardboard, sagex or aluminum cans, to sell them by the kilo at a derisory price. These old people, forgotten by all, are named : the Scavengers.

The vernissage of the exhibition at CineLux on the film's subjects will take place on the day of the screening in the Vitrine of the CinéLux. 100% of the sales will go to 2 associations involved in helping these elderly people by bringing food and medicine.
