vik muniz – wasteland

by judyko

Wasteland is a beautiful and touching documentary as Vik Muniz journeys to his native country Brazil, to Jardim Gramacho, the world’s largest garbage dump.  As we get to know the “catadores” or self-designated pickers of recyclable materials, we uncover their dignity and despair.  It is a story of how the human spirit can transform garbage into beauty and the power of art to catalyze social change and impact lives. Please go see it!

“We dedicate the movie to Valter, and remember him saying that 99 is not 100. A single can, or a single catador, can make the difference.” … Lucy Walker, January 2010 (director of Wasteland)
