Documentary | A Day in the Life of a Scavenger

Each year, up to thousands of people, riddled with poverty, resort to scavenging and selling cardboard on the streets in Hong Kong. Grandma Wong, a 70-year-old, is one of the local scavengers who experience day-to-day suffering under the pressure of an ever-evolving society. In today’s episode, we look into the daily life of Wong and investigate the factors behind her situation as a scavenger.

Through the lenses of intersectionality, it becomes apparent that societal problems, such as the need to scavenge, cannot be understood in isolation. Instead, individuals often encounter a complex amalgamation of challenges that arise from the intersection of different systematic, economical, and social issues, like cycle of poverty, gender, and age.
