Release Notes


Official Website


This engaging doc starts off as a look at Brazil-born, Brooklyn-based Vik Muniz as he plans to use the garbage found in one of Rio’s biggest dumps for a massive art project. But to its credit, this film eventually becomes more interested in the lives of the trash-pickers employed to help the artist realize his dream.
