    • Renowned arist Vik Muniz
      and a group of landfill
      scavengers take an
      emotional journey from
      a giant garbage dump in
      Rio de Janeiro to the most
      prestigious auction houses and museums in the world.
      Ultimately, the alchemic transformation of trash
      into art also transforms the artist and his collaborators,
      taking them to entirely new worlds.
