Synopsis

360 degrees tells the story of two young men in Kufranjah, Jordan. Like many other young men, their talents were going to waste, and they were unable to find work or opportunities for their skills. 

Undaunted, these young men decided to take their situation into their own hands, using old discarded materials to produce something new. They demonstrate the creativity and innovation that rests within the young people in Jordan, and show how they were able to create their own jobs just by using raw materials and inexpensive tools. 

The film hopes to promote recycling and environmental conservation, and to motivate young people in Jordan to create jobs using their skills, even when work is so hard to come by. Finally, the filmmakers want to erase the “culture of shame” around manual labor in the community, showing that working with raw materials and recycling can be just as productive as studying at university.
