The world generates about a billion tons of garbage a year. Those who live with it and from it are the poor – like the people of Cateura, Paraguay, where they are transforming it into beauty. This documentary follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura as it takes its inspiring spectacle of trash-into-music around the world. Follow the lives of a garbage picker, a music teacher and a group of children from a Paraguayan slum who, out of necessity, started creating instruments entirely out of garbage. This film is a beautiful story about the transformative power of music, which also highlights two vital issues of our times: poverty and waste pollution.
This Special Director’s Edition Blu-ray 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 at the Musical Instrument Museum," along with English subtitles.
