WASTE LAND leaves you speechless. ‘An uplifting feature documentary highlighting the transformative power of art and the beauty of the human spirit. Top-selling contemporary artist Vik Muniz takes us on an emotional journey from Jardim Gramacho, the world's largest landfill on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, to the heights of international art stardom. Vik collaborates with the brilliant catadores, pickers of recyclable materials, true Shakespearean characters who live and work in the garbage quoting Machiavelli and showing us how to recycle ourselves’ (after IMDb). HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE!!!!

PS. The film 'Wasteland' left a huge impact on me. I just couldn't stop thinking about it, all the people that appeared there and about life in general. It's one of the best films I have ever seen! it won the audience prize at the World Film Festival 'Trzy Żywioły' in Wroclaw.
