Sewer diving as a dream job in Mexico – vpro Metropolis

In a regular sewer people leave their ‘normal business’, but in Mexico City not so much. Sometimes things like refrigerators, cars and ever dead cows are dumped in the sewer there, which makes the sewer clogged. Fortunately Don Julio is there to save the city from its own poo, as he is the city’s one and only sewer diver. ‘People think I’m crazy, but I love my job. It’s so nice, that filthy water.’

vpro Metropolis was a video project by Dutch broadcast organisation vpro, that ran from 2008 to 2015. Metropolis is made by a global collective of young filmmakers and TV producers, reporting on remarkable stories from their own country/city. We made a trip around the globe on one single issue: from local beauty ideals to Elvis impersonators, to what’s it like being gay, or an outcast or a dog in different cultures.

BTown830 says:

Stupid mexicans don’t respect where they live. Throwing garbage and dead animals in the sewer. That’s why when they move into a neighborhood, it immediately looks like shit. No reason for this guy to do this. They make submersible cameras, and other test equipment. Fucking third world over there.
