Waste Land is an uplifting feature documentary highlighting the transformative power of art and the beauty of the human spirit. Contemporary artist Vik Muniz takes us on an emotional journey from Jardim Gramacho, the world’s largest landfill on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, to the heights of international art stardom. Vik collaborates with the surprisingly brilliant catadores, pickers of recyclable materials, true Shakespearean characters who live and work in the garbage quoting Machiavelli and showing us how to recycle ourselves. Featuring music by Moby. Academy-Award nominated and winner of IDA’s Best Documentary Award as well as over fifty other awards including Audience Awards at both Berlin and Sundance.
