For one of the many outstanding, memorable series in ‘Waste Land,’ a globally well-known actor Vik Muniz educates his listeners concerning watching art within a museum. People have a propensity, he informs them, to draw near the paintings, then beyond, then nearer, then beyond once more, occasionally. Whenever they are far-flung, they acquire the general notion the pieces artwork that is being displayed. If they walk closer, they seek to comprehend how such artworks are made. As from far, the audience can view idea. When they come closer, they can see the issue (Walker nd).


The greater notion of this film directed by Lucy Walker certainly is to give the description of process creation. From the description of the process created, the subjects, in this case, are  garbage pickers who are Brazilian. They are known as ‘catadores.’ On the other hand, issues are the recyclable substances that are removed from a large garbage ground called ‘Jardim Gramacho.’ The ground garbage collects significant wastes from Rio de Janeiro, which is a larger metropolis region (Walker nd). Nevertheless, this is simply an inner circle about this elegant film. The first section of outlines searches which sets off a project where the actor looks at the space of a large garbage plunk.

Initially, it appears to be one of its effort, a square on a drawing, men getting closer seem to be discernible at ants’ dimension.  When it is zoomed, the audience discerns a whole human scenery made up of individuals who might be operating physically within garbage site. However, they are working with dignity and pride. Besides, the logic behind their labor is benefiting everyone within the society. Even though Walker’s documentary attempts to provide a rather a positive response towards the major question in the film, one can never avoid an insignificant doubt of manipulations.
