  • This event has passed.


ArtCentral has partnered with The Northern Hills Rotary Club to create a film series that will benefit the community. Through this series, we use art as a tool – films in this case – to engage our community on specific topics that are relevant to both partnering organizations. 

Following each film, the co-hosting organization will help facilitate a discussion about ideas presented in the film. Co-hosts for films are organizations in our community and will help us talk about how these issues relate to the Spearfish community. The co-hosts will also actively promote each film to their organization to increase awareness of the film series offerings.


All films are FREE! General Admission.

“Waste Land” is an uplifting feature documentary highlighting the transformative power of art and the beauty of the human spirit. Top-selling contemporary artist, Vik Muniz, takes us on an emotional journey from Jardim Gramacho, the world’s largest landfill on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, to the heights of international art stardom. Vik collaborates with the brilliant catadores, pickers of recyclable materials. They are true Shakespearean characters who live and work in the garbage quoting Machiavelli and showing us how to recycle ourselves. DISCUSSION follows the movie until approximately 9 p.m.
