「最美的時刻是:當東西改變形體並以另一種全新的面貌呈現在世人的眼前。譬如由聲音組成音樂,或是由不起眼的垃圾轉換成藝術品。」

一位頗具盛名的紐約當代藝術家,在里約熱內盧全世界最大的垃圾掩埋場裡尋找「可回收再利用」的材料來進行創作;巧克力、土壤、線團、糖漿,都在他手中展現不凡的活力。這不僅是一部關於藝術創作的影片,還有更多拾荒者的故事……

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 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 dignity and despair as the catadores begin to re-imagine their lives.

WALKER has great access to the entire process and, in the end, offers stirring evidence of the transformative power of art and the alchemy of the human spirit.
