Our world has actually many heroes, but most people do not notice about them. In Brazil, “catadores” or junk collectors are considered heroes, for they collect junk that are recyclable, sorting it and turn garbage that are harmful to our environment into something useful. But while they provide a vital service that benefits all, they are nearly invisible as they roam the streets. Enter graffiti artist Mundano, a TED Fellow. In a spirited talk, he describes his project “Pimp My Carroça,” which has transformed these heroic workers’ carts into things of beauty and infused them with a sense of humor. It’s a movement that is going global.

 

Mundano’s bold, colorful street art isn’t just eye candy. His projects call attention to social, environmental and political issues, while raising chuckles from passersby. Mundano is a Brazilian street artist and activist whose work makes people stop and think about the issues swirling around them everyday. In 2007, he began using his graffiti skills to paint “carroças,” the wooden and metal carts used by the trash collectors throughout Brazil who haul off junk and recyclables.

 

At home in Brazil, Mundano works on other projects too. Since 2008, he has used the posters and banners that plaster Brazilian cities during elections to create thought-provoking art. For the election in 2014, he turned these enormous plastic banners into a giant voting booth filled with waste in a square in Rio de Janeiro. “I use these ads to get people to reflect on the corrupted political system. On all the false promises, and all the awful waste,” he explains.

If you love Madagascar, you should check out this new animated movie from DreamWorks Animation –Penguins Of Madagascar. A direct-to-video film featuring the penguins had been in the works since 2005, when the first Madagascar film was released, with a release date planned for 2009. In March 2011, it was announced that the penguin characters would be given their own feature film, similar to the 2011 Puss in Boots movie, to be directed by Simon J. Smith, the co-director of Bee Movie, produced by Lara Breay, and written by Alan J. Schoolcraft and Brent Simons, the writers of DreamWorks.

 

On May 20, 2014, the film’s release date was moved up to November 26, 2014, from its’ initial March 27, 2015 bow, switching places with DreamWorks Animation’s other film, Home. Jeffrey Katzenberg, DreamWorks Animation’s CEO, reasoned that the film, coming from one of DWA’s most successful franchises, would have an easier task to stand out around the Thanksgiving holiday season, while Home will try to take advantage of a less competitive spring release window, and repeat successful spring launches of some of DWA’s original films, including The Croods and How to Train Your Dragon. The film was released two weeks earlier in China, on November 14, 2014.

 

In PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR, audiences will discover the secrets of the most entertainingly mysterious birds in the global espionage game. Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private now must join forces with the chic spy organization, the North Wind, led by Agent Classified to stop the cunning villain Dr. Octavius Brine from taking over the world. Distributed by 20th Century Fox Pictures, featuring the voices of John Malkovich, Chris Miller, Tom McGrath, Conrad Vernon and Christopher Knights.  The film was released last November 26, 2014. It is the first film in the Madagascar franchise that is distributed by 20th Century Fox.
