Faculty in the art department at Hagerstown Community College are partnering with students in the HCC Science Club to show the documentary, “Waste Land,” on Fri., April 20, at 7 p.m., in the Kepler Theater.

According to the film website, “Waste Land” 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, where he photographs an eclectic band of “catadores”—self-designated pickers of recyclable materials.
