This is a super interesting doc that was filmed over about three years. This artist Vik Muniz went from Brooklyn to his native Brazil where is found the world's largest garbage dump located close to Rio De Janero. Designated self pickers "catadores" are who the story revolve around. The initial intent was to "paint" the catadores with garbage which revolved into photographic images of themselves out of garbage.
AND this just looks like an interesting short and beautiful cinematography. These are both films that were in the Sundance film festival. Two very different but interesting on the same level to me.
