The Launch of Amor Fati and The Last Ship Film Series, a community project developed by artists-in-residency at Last Ship, with the screening of WASTELAND, a critically acclaimed film by director Lucy Walker (Devil's Playground, Blindsight, Countdown to Zero).

Filmed over nearly three years, Wasteland follows renowned artist Vik Muniz as he journeys from his home base in Brooklyn to his native Brazil and the world's largest garbage dump, Jardim Gramacho, located on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. There he photographs an eclectic band of “catadores”—self-designated pickers of recyclable materials. Muniz’s initial objective was to “paint” the catadores with garbage. However, his collaboration with these inspiring characters as they recreate photographic images of themselves out of garbage reveals both the dignity and despair of the catadores as they begin to re-imagine their lives.
