In the series Metropolis you see the world through the eyes of local journalists. In their own city or country they are looking for the answer to universal questions: what is it like to be a woman, to be an adolescent, to be gay, to be depressed or ... to be menstruating?

The topics include fit girls, tiny houses, illigal parties and working as a deliverer. You follow, for example, Yohanes, who delivers sheep to people’s doors in Ethiopia. He ties the animal to his back, steps on his bike and when he arrives at the customer’s house, he will often slaughter the animal for them too.

Metropolis’ local journalists report from:

  • Iran, Brazil, Russia, Kenya, the USA, Japan, India, Pakistan, Ethiopia and Indonesia
Please note: the introduction was made for a Dutch audience, but can easily be tailored for other countries.
