WASTE LAND follows Vik Muniz as he journeys from his home base in Brooklyn to Rio de Janeiro’s Jardim Gramacho, the world’s largest garbage dump. There he photographs an eclectic band of “catadores” — self-designated pickers of recyclable materials. His collaboration with these inspiring men and women as they recreate their portraits out of trash reveals both their dignity and despair as they begin to re-imagine their lives.
Arthouse Films contacted us the other day to tell us about WASTE LAND, a new award-winning documentary directed by Lucy Walker opening in NYC on October 29th at The Angelika Film Center. The trailer featured below is fantastic and the concept of the film is super inspiring.
