Posted by Len Gilbert on February 4, 2012

Sunday February 12, 7:00-8:30 pm

Waste Land (home showing of movie)

From the Chronicle review: “Waste Land is a film about recycling, but it’s far more intriguing than the average eco-documentary. The subject is Brazilian garbage-pickers and how Brazilian-born artist Vik Muniz created striking photo portraits of a half-dozen of them and transformed their lives. There are amazing shots of pickers at work on the world’s largest landfill, near Rio, and we learn heartbreaking details of the lives of those who became Muniz’s subjects. Directed by Lucy Walker

Location: TBA. Please RSVP at www.piedmontconnect.org and we will send directions. Space is very limited.
