A Heartfelt Story About How Music Gave Hope to an Entire Community
The multi-award winning film Landfill Harmonic follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, a Paraguayan musical group founded by youth that play instruments made entirely out of garbage. When their story goes viral, the orchestra is catapulted into the global spotlight. Under the guidance of idealistic music director Favio Chavez, the orchestra must navigate a strange new world of arenas and sold-out concerts. But when a natural disaster strikes their community, Favio must find a way to keep the orchestra intact and provide a source of hope for their town. We know you’ll agree: Landfill Harmonic is a testimony to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit!
