A fly-on-the-wall look into the infamous Ghanaian E-waste site Agblogboshie, Sam Goldwater's nearly 10-minute short doc Regolith goes inside what many have termed Sodom and Gomorrah, a sort of war zone type area that Goldwater was determined to present with as much authenticity as possible while finding out the truth.

A co-production with DazedDigital.com, Regolith is a rather straightforward and observational short film that succeeds in not so much taking sides as merely allowing the viewer an inside glimpse at an area that most Americans certainly have not seen. The film is the first short film released by London-based ImageFiction Films, an outfit co-founded by Goldwater and Isobel Mascarenhas-Whitman to tell untold, highly visual stories in documentary and fiction. Goldwater is an award-winning director and Regolith is a seriously fine documentary short.
