Landfill Harmonic (2005)
Brad Allgood / Graham Townsley, Paraguai / Brazil / USA
84’ (documentary, subtitled)


“Landfill Harmonic” tells the story of Cateura’s recycled orchestra, a musical group of Paraguayan children that lives next to one of the biggest landfills in South America. This unlikely orchestra plays with instruments built entirely out of garbage. It is a testimony of the transforming power of music and the wonderful resistance of the human spirit.
