Background
Thanks to the Food Center Amsterdam, we were able to screen the movie Waste Land in the beautiful old Central Market Hall. Waste Land is an award-winning documentary that highlights the transformative power of art and the beauty of the human spirit. Set in Jardim Gramacho, the world’s largest landfill on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro the film looks at the catadores, pickers of recyclable materials, who live and work in the garbage.

CITOPIA is a film-related initiative that CITIES has been developing since 2010: essentially an event in which an identified group is invited to enjoy movie screenings in locations that can be considered representative of each film’s context. Thanks to our collaboration with Volle Band, we are able to screen movies in unusual locations for those interested in understanding the distorted reality produced by the current food system.
