I will never look at my trash the same way after viewing the documentary titled "Waste Land".
The renowned artist Vik Muniz embarks on one of the most inspired collaborations of his career, joining creative forces with Brazilian catadores -- garbage pickers who mine treasure from the trash heaps of Rio de Janeiro's Jardim Gramacho landfill. In this Oscar-nominated documentary, the catadores prove to be unique and surprising individuals in their own right, waxing philosophic as they impart a valuable lesson about what society discards.
This is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen....and yes...I did cry with joy to know that many artists that I meet each day have these same characteristics.
