Children from a Paraguayan slum play instruments constructed from garbage in their вЂњRecycled Orchestra.вЂќ This beautiful story weaves together the transformative power of music, poverty and waste pollution into a precautionary yet hopeful tale. Landfill Harmonic follows the orchestra as it shares the inspiring spectacle of trash-into-music around the world, sharing harmonies and realities of the billion tons of garbage produced every year and the lives of those who must live alongside the worldв’s trash.В Directed by Brad Allgood and Graham Townsley. Produced and co-directed by Juliana Penaranda-Loftus. Executive Producer, Alejandra Amarilla. Co-producer, Jorge Maldonado.
Discussion with filmmakers Brad Allgood, Graham Townsley, Alejandra Amarilla, Juliana Penaranda-Loftus, and Jorge Maldonado follows screening.
