Award-winning documentary following internationally successful Brazilian artist Vik Muniz as he leaves his New York studio behind and travels to Jardim Gramacho, the world's largest landfill site, on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. There he meets the 'catadores' ('pickers') who make their living by collecting and selling recyclable materials such as bottles, plastic and metal from the landfill. In a bid to raise funds for the site's workers' association, Muniz selects a group of six catadores to pose as subjects for a new series of artworks and puts them up for sale in one of Rio's most upmarket galleries.
