Comments about PBS Waste Land DVD:

This is a story of the ominus power of creative energy and life that comes out of even the most disparaging places on earth - that we, as humans, have created and then can 're create'. I was inspired

Art Transforming Lives? Yes It Does!

By 'Dwin

from Philadelphia, PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS Waste Land DVD:

So rarely can we observe creators of beauty, that when we do, our 'shudder of response' transforms our very sense of dignity. Our being human is honored by Director Lucy Walker in partnership with artist Vik Muniz, who aesthetically perfected the living "spirit, courage and dignity" (Walker's comment to Tavis Smiley: 11/04/2010) of the Rio de Janiero garbage dump persons--and thereby--transforming themselves, us, and our shared world of respect for humanity.
