We recently added Waste Land to the DBRL collection. The movie played at the True False Film Fest in 2010, and has also received some positive reviews from critics. The director of the film is Lucy Walker, who has directed the documentaries Blindsight and Countdown to Zero. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
Top-selling contemporary artist Vik Muniz takes viewers on an emotional journey to the world’s largest landfill of the day, Jardim Gramacho. Here the catadores, who number in the thousands, work under the hot sun collecting recyclable materials such as bottles, plastic, and metal to be sold to wholesalers. Muniz invites the catadores to add refuse to his art, photographing the work from overhead. The finished artwork will then be on display in museums and auctions around the world.
