Tuesday January 29

7:00 PM  –  8:30 PM


WASTE LAND follows artist Vik Muniz on a singularly ambitious project: going to the world's largest garbage dump north of Rio de Janeiro, photographing its catadores, or trash pickers, and then collaborating with them to transform these photos into portraits created with recyclable materials. Winner of Audience Awards of Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals; Acadamy Award Nominee for Best Feature Documentary. The exhibition VantagePoint X / Vik Muniz: Garbage Matters will be on view at Mint Museum Uptown through April 28, 2013.
