Event Details

In conjunction with Advertising Exhibitions' Rubbish Gallery we are proud to present a screening of the Oscar-nominated and high-acclaimed documentary WASTE LAND. 

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”—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. Director Lucy Walker (DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND, BLINDSIGHT and COUNTDOWN TO ZERO) and co-directors João Jardim and Karen Harley have great access to the entire process and, in the end, offer stirring evidence of the transformative power of art and the alchemy of the human spirit.

In addition to the screening, we have teamed up with Catlin Art Prize winner Russell Hill, who will be talking about his approach to objects in his art practice. Russell uses found consumer objects to question where and how they function in society - a topic which beautifully compliments the screening. 

Whirled Cinema was established in 2010, a cosy and comfortable independent cinema 5 minutes from Loughborough Junction station. Grab some drinks at the bar and then sit back.

All tickets are reasonably priced at £8.50, please print them off or show a confirmation on a mobile device.
