One Person's Trash

I cannot wait to see this. Waste Land, which opens today at the Angelika in NYC, is a documentary about the catadores (garbage pickers) who live and work in Brazil's Jardim Gramacho, one of the world's largest garbage dumps. The film chronicles their lives and recent collaboration with the artist Vic Muniz (now based in Brooklyn but born in São Paulo) in the creation of his latest series, Pictures of Garbage.

Read the NY Times movie review here, and an article about Muniz here.
