(2010, second version, 5:00) is film about two enormous waste dumps in NYC, the first one is now closed ordinary waste dump, which at one point was the largest in the world, the other is a cemetery of unknowns, still in use. Of the latter the film says: New York is the only major American city to maintain a separate public burial ground for its strangers, for those who die alone and unclaimed or for whom nobody is willing or able to afford a private funeral - a potter's field. The term "potter's field" refers to land purchased for the burial of strangers just outside of town and comes from a passage in Matthew 27:5-7: 'Then Judas, which had betrayed Him, saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests ... and they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field to bury strangers in'" Jan's film bluntly asks: what does the existence of these two huge mountains of economic and social waste and rejected surplus tell about our civilization and about the "richest nation in the world", and what kind of legacy will the archeologists see in them when they are studying these a few centuries from now?
