Waste Land - this documentary has been a long time in the making. I have read a lot about it's creator and have seen many clips produced along the way. Now it is up for an Academy Award.
A recent novela on national television ripped off the idea of painting portraits of people using recycled objects from the trash.
I'm not sure how much will come from this documentary to actually help those people who scratch a living out of the trash they collect and recycle, but it is always worthwhile, I think, to bring such realities into the light.
It would be nice to get a Brazilian romantic comedy up for an Academy Award for a change.
