Waste Land (2010) – Official Trailer [HD] suggested I should watch Waste land after she saw my post with the landfill harmonic orchestra video which had a huge impact on me. I checked the trailer which I’m posting now & will give you the title for the whole video to see on You tube (it will take too much space here)
It is another story of hope, creativity & so much more I can hardly put into words…
