Synopsis: Despite of her eighty years, Aimée has been fighting for years for a right waste management at Stromboli. In this very small island near Sicily, it’s clear as the goodwill of the citizens could permit to realize a proper waste separation and home composting, instead of expensive shipping. On the contrary, the local government prefers creating the waste problem for rising funds. Her little local story becomes emblematic for the rest of Italy: garbage crisis, hampered environmentalists, corrupted politicians.

Biography: Salvo Manzone follows many workshops in film direction with Raul Ruiz, Abbas Kiarostami, Wiseman, Johan Van der Keuken, Daniele Ciprí and Franco Maresco. In 1999 he graduated in Electronic Engineering. Since 1997 he has been living in Paris where he works as documentary director, as well as engineer in the audiovisual field, translator and trainer. In 2001, he launched Epinoia, an association of young video-makers and since 2005 he has been working with the independent national French television Zalea TV. Since 2009 he has been directing many documentaries about ecology and waste.
