The Green Screen 2

Please join us for a Free film screening of WASTE LAND by Lucy Walker

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” – or 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 dignity and despair as the catadores begin to re-imagine their lives. (98 minutes)

Hosted by The Green Screen – A  monthly environmental film series produced by Charitable Film Network and The Green Project with support from Press Street’s Antenna Gallery.  Screenings are are free, and held monthly at The Green Project Warehouse – so invite your friends!
