Screening of Award Winning Film, Waste Land
Join us for a screening of the critically acclaimed and award winning film, WASTE LAND.

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. This film is more than just about "garbage", it offers stirring evidence of the transformative power of art and the alchemy of the human spirit.

Watch the preview at http://www.wastelandmovie.com

Organic popcorn, snacks and beverages will be available for purchase.
Optional open discussion about the film and current waste issues will be held afterwards.
