Thursday, July 19, 2012 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM

BY INVITATION ONLY.

A scene from Waste Land

Description

"We are not pickers of garbage; we are pickers of recyclable materials."

This critically acclaimed documentary explores identity, aid, and artistic expression in a community of Brazilian trash pickers outside Rio de Janeiro. Documentarian Lucy Walker follows the Brooklyn-based Brazilian artist Vik Muniz as he collaborates with the trash pickers to create large-scale artworks, and then sets up long-term aid for the community.

A reception on the Carnegie Council patio will precede the screening, and a discussion will follow.
