The world's largest rubbish dump is probably the last place on earth you'd expect to find art or beauty, but that's exactly what British director Lucy Walker uncovers in her Oscar-nominated documentary. Filmed in and around Jardim Gramacho, the gigantic landfill site which serves the city of Rio de Janeiro, the film documents the work of contemporary Brazilian artist Vik Muniz alongside those employed as 'catadores' (rubbish 'pluckers') to create mass-scale artworks from the discarded materials they find there. Inspiring and uplifting, the film shows how human creativity can empower people facing the kind of poverty and hardship that most of us find hard to imagine.
Contains mild language and references to sex and drugs.
