Give Off / Give out documents an intervention in Jakarta on January 5th, 2011, dealing with the problems of fine dust after the demolition of buildings. Indonesia is the second biggest importer of asbestos, which is extremely dangerous when inhaled. In the video you see a small team trying to prevent the fine dust, which carries asbestos in it, of spreading through the air by watering the site. This intervention gets repeated in different parts of the city.
