Join us for an evening at the MFA featuring our popular Art on Film series. We will have special evening hours at the museum and a screening of the award-winning documentary WASTE LAND on Thursday, November 2. WASTE LAND is a 98-minute uplifting feature documentary highlighting the transformative power of art and the beauty of the human spirit. Directed by Lucy Walker and Co-directed by João Jardim and Karen Harley, WASTE LAND is set on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro at Jardim Gramacho, the world’s largest landfill, where men and women sift through garbage for a living. Artist Vik Muniz produces portraits of the workers and learns about their lives. This special screening of WASTE LAND is part of a series of public programming events designed to illuminate the MFA’s forthcoming exhibition, The Nature of Art, which looks at the myriad ways humans have used art to navigate and mediate our environment.
