Lucy Walker: Waste Land

Hosted by

The Amish, blind mountain climbers, fighting for nuclear disarmament... Director Lucy Walker's (Countdown to Zero, Devil’s Playground, Blindsight) new film, Waste Land, is about waste becoming art. It's drama and non-fiction.

Walker discusses meeting artist Vik Muniz and their decision to make a film about art and garbage, a landfill as a dramatic film location, the "social whiplash" of filming in the world's largest landfill and dining with Rio's fashionable elite, and "99 is not 100" as her new mantra.
