Documentary about Brazil dump vies for Oscar
In this photo taken Feb. 9, 2011, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz looks at his book "Lixo Extraordinario" during an interview with The Associated Press in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. After decades of anonymity, the workers of the Gramacho Municipal Landfill have been catapulted to fame by a collaboration with Muniz, who used the trash they sort to create portraits of the pickers. A documentary recording that experience is now vying for an Oscar. Money raised from Muniz's portraits of them has helped many of the scavengers prepare for the closing of the dump by establishing worker-run recycling co-ops. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana)
