Waste Land Trailer

  • A prize-winning documentary about beauty, redemption, and garbage

  • Tags:

    Outside of Rio de Janeiro lies Jardim Gramacho, the world's largest landfill, where 3,000 "catadores" make their living foraging for recyclables among the garbage. In Waste Land, a documentary that opens in U.S. theaters this week, director Lucy Walker chronicles a project by Brazil-born, Broooklyn-based artist Vik Muniz, who returned to his homeland to create portraits of the catadores made from the trash itself. It looks like a fascinating film, looking forward to taking it in.
