Harmonic Paraguay 2016 no rating Documentary/Music 84 mins.
The Recycled Orchestra, made up of materials save from the trash heap, is the subject of this film which highlights two vital concerns of our time: poverty and pollution. Following the lives of a garbage picker, a music teacher and a group of children from a Paraguayan slum, we watch them create instruments and music. When their story becomes known, they go on tour and fulfill a dream: to play with heavy metal band, Megadeth.
Like recycled garbage used to create symphonic-quality musical instruments, Brad Allgood and Graham Townsley's Landfill Harmonic is a secret treasure. Kate X Messer, Austin Chronicle
This film is sponsored by Irene Hensinger.
