The world generates about a billion tons of garbage a year. Folks that live with it and from it are the poor–like the people of Cateura, Paraguay, where they’re transforming it into beauty. This documentary follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura as it takes its inspiring spectacle of trash-into-music around the globe. Follow the lives of a garbage picker, a music teacher and a group of children from a Paraguayan slum who, out of necessity, began creating instruments entirely out of garbage. This film is a gorgeous story about the transformative power of music, which also highlights two important issues of our times: poverty and waste pollution.
This DVD features surround sound, the official “Landfill Harmonic” trailer and extras: “From Cateura to Oslo: Like Taking a Rocket to the Moon,” “From the Landfill to Congress: Paraguayan Congress Honors Favio Chávez with National Award”, and “A Legacy Secured: The Recycled Orchestra on Display on the Musical Instrument Museum,” together with English subtitles.
