Waste Land

What an incredibly creative, inspiring, joyous and wonderful film Waste Land is.

Just released at the Sydney Film Festival about the artist Vik Muniz and a team of garbage (recyclable material) scavengers in the world's largest landfill in Rio.

Watch the trailer here and interview with the film maker Lucy Walker here

Transforming garbage into contemporary art. A process of transformation all around.

Look out for Countdown to Zero about nuclear weapons, also by Lucy Walker later this year.
