¡Cine Magnífico! Albuquerque Latino Film Festival: Landfill Harmonic

September 17, 2016

11:30 am

Director: Brad Allgood, Graham Townsley

Landfill harmonic follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, a paraguayan musical youth group of kids that live next to one of South America’s largest landfills. This unlikely orchestra plays music from instruments made entirely out of garbage. When their story goes viral, the orchestra is catapulted into the global spotlight. With the guidance of their music director, they must navigate this new world of arenas and sold out concerts. However, when a natural disaster devastates their community, the orchestra provides a source of hope for the town. The film is a testament to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit.
A Free ticketed event: tickets available one hour prior to the event.

Los instrumentos de la “Recycled Orchestra”, formada por niños de un barrio de chabolas de Paraguay, están hechos de basura reciclada. El documental recoge el espectáculo mundial de esta formación. Una historia sobre el poder de la música, la pobreza y la contaminación mundial.
