Latitude 53 presents Waste Land at Metro Cinema

Wednesday September 11, 7 pm

Metro Cinema at The Garneau: 8712 109 Street

Be a part of Latitude 53’s first Metro movie night on Wednesday, 11 September with our showing of Waste Land. Director Lucy Walker’s documentary follows the journey of visual artist Vik Muniz as he travels to the world’s largest garbage dump in Rio de Janeiro. There he photographs an eclectic band of “catadores”—self-designated garbage pickers of recyclable materials. With the help of the communities that work within the dump, Muniz creates inspiring portraits of the catadores using art to change their social landscapes.

Waste Land shows us how artists find ideas and concepts for their work from the most unlikely sources and it demonstrates the power of art to spark curiosity and cultural awareness in even the poorest, most underprivileged people.
