Event Details

Waste Land is a documentary film featuring renowned contemporary artist Vik Muniz who is best known for creating original and reimagining historical works of art with unusual materials such as chocolate syrup, peanut butter, and jelly. The film tracks the development of a 2008 series of monumental photographic portraits made from trash. Entitled Pictures of Garbage, this series was created by Muniz in collaboration with the garbage pickersor catadoresof Jardim Gramacho, a 321-acre, open-air dump just outside Rio de Janeiro that is one of the largest landfills in Latin America.

Through the process, this documentary captures both the dignity and despair of an essentially discarded group of people as they begin to re-imagine their lives. The film tells an inspiring story of waste, poverty, consumption, and the power of art to change our view of all things.
