Waste land by Lucy Walker( Visual )

Brooklyn based artist Vik Muniz grew up poor in Brazil. This film follows him as he returns to Rio de Janeiro, specifically to Jardim Gramacho, or "Garbage Garden." The world's largest landfill, it receives 7,000 tons daily, an astonishing 70% of all Rio's garbage. "We are not pickers of garbage; we are pickers of recyclable materials," says Tião, a catadore, or trash picker who thinks of himself and his fellows as environmentalists. The pickers have a union, which has built a recycling center, medical clinic, day care and skills-training centers, and community lending library of discarded books for their members. Muniz photographs a number of the pickers, reworks the photographs with garbage, and auctions several in London. Believing in the transformative power of art, Muniz donates the proceeds to the pickers who posed, in recognition of their lives, in honor of the dignity of their work

Nineteen people with differing degrees of visual impairment, from mild nearsightedness to total blindness, discuss how they see themselves, how they see others, and how they perceive the world. Celebrities such as Noble prize winner José Saramago, musician Hermeto Paschoal, filmmaker Wim Wenders, photographer, Evgen Bavcar, neurologist Oliver Sacks, among others, make personal and surprising revelations about various aspects of vision--the physiological working of the eye ; the use of glasses and what it means about personality ; the meaning of seeing or not seeing in a world saturated by images; and, also the importance of emotions in transforming reality. The documentary becomes an emotional reflexion on the act of "seeing" or not seeing the world

Blinde oder kurzsichtige Prominente aus aller Welt sprechen über die Physiologie des Auges und den Einfluss des Brillentragens auf die Persönlichkeit. Zu ihnen zählen der Nobelpreisträger für Literatur Jose Saramago, die Filmregisseure Wim Wenders und Agnes Varda, der Neurologe Oliver Sacks und der Musiker Hermeto Pascoal. Der Dokumentarfilm verbindet poetische Bilder mit Aussagen über verschiedene Formen, die Welt zu sehen und wahrzunehmen. Walter Carvalho ist einer der bedeutendsten brasilianischen Kameramänner. Mit dem Regisseur Walter Salles drehte er zahlreiche Spielfilme, darunter "Central do Brasil" (1998). In "Seelenfenster" führt Carvalho zum ersten Mal selbst Regie, unterstützt von Joao Jardim. Das Thema des Sehens war diesem Mann des Bildes und des Wortes ein tiefes Anliegen, das er in seinem Film auf sehr persönliche und nachhaltige Weise umsetzt. Ein scharfsichtiger Dokumentarfilm im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes. Der Film lief auf zahlreichen Festivals und erhielt auf der Mostra von Sao Paulo 2001 den Publikumspreis und die Auszeichnung als bester Dokumentarfilm sowie Auszeichnungen auf Festivals in Rio de Janeiro, Amsterdam, St. Petersburg und Miami
