Fabio Ghivelder and Vik Muniz

Synopsis

This feature length documentary, filmed over nearly three years, follows the renowned artist Vik Muniz and a group of landfill scavengers on an emotional journey from the America's biggest garbage dump in Rio de Janeiro to the most prestigious auction houses and museums in the world via the alchemic transformation of garbage into art. Vik's initial objective was simply to 'paint' the people with garbage, however his journey with the scavengers takes him beyond the limits of what art can achieve.
