Watch the Trailer for Waste Land, a Documentary About Beauty and Trash

by Andrew Price

November 3, 2010

Jardim Gramacho, outside of Rio, is the world's largest landfill. In a new documentary called Waste Land, Vik Muniz, a Brazilian-born, Brooklyn-based artist, returns to create portraits, made from the trash itself, of the so-called "catadores" who work there.

It looks like an interesting peek at a subculture you're not likely to be exposed to otherwise, a helpful reminder that we're creating incredible volumes of trash, and a nice example of the redemptive power of art.
