Landfill Harmonic” follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, a Paraguayan musical group that plays instruments made entirely out of garbage.
As this group takes its inspiring spectacle of trash-into-music around the world, we follow the lives of a garbage picker, a music teacher and a group of children from a Paraguayan slum. Landfill Harmonic is a beautiful story about the transformative power of music, which also highlights two vital issues of our times: poverty and waste.
Recycled instrument artist and musician Russ Rice will demonstrate several of his creations and speak about his process after the film. Co-sponsored by the Pennington Public Library and the Hopewell Valley Arts Council. Special thanks to The Pennington School for their space. Free screening.
