Landfill Harmonic is a heartfelt, moving documentary that shows how the human spirit triumphs in even most trying living conditions. The movie takes place in Cateura, a poor suburb of Paraguay, where most families make their living working in the local dump. It’s their job to pick through the tons of garbage that comes from nearby cities. Located in a huge flood zone, Cateura is an extremely challenging place to live, and the kids who grow up there rarely dare to dream of a bigger life. Landfill Harmonic tells the story of how one man, Favio Chavez, changed everything for the people of Cateura when he decided to teach the children how to play music. There was only one problem: there were lots of children who wanted to learn and only a few instruments. This is understandable since most violins are worth more than one of the shack-homes in Cateura.
