Storyline

Landfill Harmonic follows the Recycled Orchestra. An unlikely orchestra made out of recycled trash. 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 pollution.

Music of the gancheros
12 January 2018 | by steveo122See all my reviews

Very well made documentary. From the depths of abject poverty and environmental travesty, the transformative power of music to lift the human spirit reinforces my opinion that music is the closest we'll get to real magic. A man comes to this community to help with the trash/pollution issues. Overwhelmed by reality, he stays to teach the children music. With more students than instruments, he enlists a ganchero/carpenter to begin building instruments from items pulled from the landfill. He is a good teacher. He is a good man. The effects are equal parts inspiration for the human spirit and dismay at the human condition. Either one should/could bring a tear to your eye. (PS: They toured with Megadeth)
