Sean Kelly

My Thoughts on Waste Land

While, at the Bell Lightbox today for the Tim Burton exhibition, I decided to see another one of the building's exclusive engagement.

Wastle Land is a documentary about a Brazilian artist, who goes to the largest landfill in Rio De Janeiro to create art in the likeness of the various "Pickers," who work in the landfill sorting out the recyclable materials, with the works of art being made with the very materials they collect.

This is definitely a feel-good documentary, since the process of working with the artist makes the workers feel better about themselves. I also quite enjoyed how the entire soundtrack of the film is made up of songs by Moby.

Waste Land was definitely an enjoyable film.
