Landfill Harmonic

Landfill Harmonic Movie Poster

The world generates about a billion tons of garbage a year. Those who live with it and from it are the poor - like the people of Cateura, Paraguay. And here they are transforming it into beauty. This documentary follows the Orchestra as it takes its inspiring spectacle of trash-into-music around the world.

Follow the lives of a garbage picker, a music teacher and a group of children from a Paraguayan slum that out of necessity started creating instruments entirely out of garbage. This film is a beautiful story about the transformative power of music, which also highlights two vital issues of our times: poverty and waste pollution.
