Watch Waste Land

"What happens in the world's largest trash city will transform you."

This award winning documentary is an inspiring story, lived as a life by Vik Muniz. Vik and his compatriots form an army of garbage dump scavenging, avant-garde artists. They are supplied by an even bigger army, the young refuse runner rats called, catadores, or pickers. The art of recycling is symbolized, by art pieces made of abandoned materials, all from various huge landfills surrounding Rio de Janeiro, especially in Jardim Gramacho. Vik's art is becoming increasingly in demand. The posh auction houses of London are waiting. The sewer rats are transformed, even as they demonstrate ecological reform, by getting paid from art sales.
