 I - ABOUT WASTE LAND

The "Waste Land" documentary co-directed by Lucy Walker, Karen Harley takes us to the outskirts of Rio De Janeiro where the biggest landfill site in the world is located.

 

This really looks like an alien landscape, and certainly not a place where anyone would want to visit for any period of time. People have seen an opportunity in the garbage and make a living by sifting through it and finding things which may be of value. The 2010 Waste Land film follows a number of women and men who make a living of the landfill to get a picture of their lives and learn who they are. The star and writer of the documentary, Vik Muniz wanted especially to highlight the beauty of the human spirit in times of extreme hardship.

Filmed over nearly three years, Waste Land follows renowned artist Vik Muniz as he journeys from his home base in Brooklyn to his native Brazil and the world's largest garbage dump, Jardim Gramacho, located on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. There he photographs an eclectic band of “catadores”—self-designated pickers of recyclable materials. Muniz’s initial objective was to “paint” the catadores with garbage. However, his collaboration with these inspiring characters as they recreate photographic images of themselves out of garbage reveals both the dignity and despair of the catadores as they begin to re-imagine their lives.
