Landfill HarmonicLANDFILL HARMONIC (84 mins, NC-age advice-PG, 2015)

Landfill harmonic follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, a Paraguayan musical youth group of kids that live next to one of South America’s largest landfills. This unlikely orchestra plays music from instruments made entirely out of rubbish from the landfill. When their story goes viral on You Tube, the orchestra is catapulted into the global spotlight and they must navigate this new world of arenas and sold out concerts. However, when a natural disaster devastates their community, the orchestra provides a source of hope for the town. The film is a testament to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit. Watch the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCjbd21fYV8
