Don't Waste People
Documentary Premiere with Director Julia Waterhous
Saturday, March 29
7 PM

In Honor of Women's History Month, MoRUS Opens its Doors for an Evening with Female Activist Filmmaker Julia Waterhous

"Don't Waste People" seeks to give voice to waste pickers in Delhi against dominant discourse that favors policies that exclude the poor. The film challenges assumptions, cultivates empathy, and encourages inclusivity.

The issues presented represent a global trend, and the secondary goal of "Don't Waste People" is to bring perspective to societies where wastefulness is encouraged by advertisements selling consumption under the guise of prosperity.
