The City Ditch

Nils Vest, Henrik Sørensen, Denmark, 1973

9 min.DK/Documentary

About a small stream in Hvidovre, THE CITY DITCH, and its fate. Owing to pollution its fauna has eventually become extinct, but nevertheless, it serves as a playground for the children of the neighbourhood. Rather than epolluting the stream, the municipal authorities choose to pipe it - and the last bit of environment is gone. Some children tell us about the stream and what happened.
