Landfill Harmonic is a film about “The Recycled Orchestra”, a group of children from a Paraguayan slum who play instruments made entirely of rubbish. It is a beautiful story about the transformative power of music, which also highlights two vital issues of our times: poverty and waste pollution.

The world generates about a billion tons of waste 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. Landfill Harmonic follows the orchestra as it takes its inspiring spectacle of trash-into-music around the world.

Landfill Harmonic shows how waste and recycled materials can be transformed into beautiful sounding musical instruments, but more importantly, it brings witness to the transformation of precious human beings.

Presented in Latin American Spanish with English subtitles.
