                          The Four Oxen and the Lion


          A Lion used to prowl about a field in which Four Oxen used to live. Many a time he tried to attack them; but whenever he came near, they turned their tails to one another, so that whichever way he approached them he was met by the horns of one of them. At last, however, they quarreled among themselves, and each went off to pasture alone in a separate corner of the field. Then the Lion attacked them one by one and soon made an end of all four.

                   As Furniture Burns Quicker,
                  Firefighters Reconsider Tactics


          House fires have changed. The New York Fire Department is rethinking its tactics for residential fires, while trying to hold onto its culture of “aggressive interior firefighting" - charging inside burning buildings as fast as possible.

    Plastic flllings in sofas and mattresses burn much fasterthan olderfillings like cotton, helping to transform the behavior of house flres in the last few decades, fireflghters and engineers say. With more plastic in homes, residential flres are now likely to use up all the oxygen in a room before they consume all flammable materiais.

    “Years ago you could break a window and it took the fire several minutes to develop — or tens of minutes”, a fire battalion chief in Queens, George K. Healy, said. “Now we're learning when you vent that window or the door, the fire is developing in, say, a minute.”

                                             Synopsis


          Filmed over nearly three years, 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. There he photographs an eclectic band of “catadores” — self-designated pickers of recyclable materiais. 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. Director Lucy Walker (DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND, BLINDSIGHT and COUNTDOWN TO ZERO) and co-directors João Jardim and Karen Harley have great access to the entire process and, in the end, offer stirring evidence of the transformative power of art and the alchemy of the human spirit.

                                If You’re Out There


    If you hear this message

    Wherever you stand

    I'm calling every woman

    Calling every man

    We're the generation

    We can't afford to wait

    The future started yesterday

    And we're already late

    We've been looking for a song to sing

    Searched for a melody

    Searched for someone to lead

    We've been looking for the world to change

    If you feel the same, we'll go on and say

    If you're out there

    Sing along with me if you're out there

    I'm dying to believe that you're out there

    Stand up and say it loud if you're out there

    Tomorrow's starting now...now...now [...]

    We can destroy Hunger

    We can conquer Hate

    Put down the arms and raise your voice

    We're joining hands today [...]
