2010 Big Sky Film Series  - WASTE LAND
When:  October 1, 2010 - Screening at 7:30 p.m.
Where:  Historic Wilma Theatre/Missoula, Montana Cost:
Free Public Admission

Big Sky Films Series continues this Friday with the fifth installment
of the 2010 season, WASTE LAND, presented by Art House Films.

Filmed over nearly three years, WASTE LAND follows renowned artist
Vik Muniz as he journeys from his home base in Brooklyn to his native
Brazil and the world's largest garbage dump, Jardim Gramacho, located
on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. There he photographs an eclectic
band of "catadores" -- or self-designated pickers of recyclable
materials. Muniz's initial objective was to "paint" the catadores
with garbage. However, his collaboration with these inspiring
characters as they recreate photographic images of themselves out of
garbage reveals both the dignity and despair of the catadores as they
begin to re-imagine their lives. Walker (DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND,
BLINDSIGHT) has great access to the entire process and, in the end,
offers stirring evidence of the transformative power of art and the
alchemy of the human spirit.

The Big Sky Film Series is a periodic monthly screening series
highlighting traditional and innovative nonfiction film and video. It
is held the first Friday of the month as part of downtown Missoula,
Montana's "Art Walk." All screenings are held in the Historic Wilma
Theatre and are FREE and open to the public. The series is programmed
by the staff of the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival.
