Illuminate Film Fest: “Landfill Harmonic” Proves the Creative Human Spirit Can Always Triumph

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.

NYC TV Reporting Grossly Distorts Black Citizen Role in Crime

NYC TV Reporting Grossly Distorts Black Citizen Role in Crime

If news stations are unfairly and inaccurately priming viewers not to expect stories about white crime, it only serves to harden the inaccurate thesis that viewers carry with them in their hearts and minds, in the form of their implicit bias—that Black people are overly responsible for crime and should be treated with special suspicion…When media-makers get the proportions so egregiously wrong, it reinforces a culture in which the benefit of the doubt is not distributed evenly, which creates a hostile society for some and a privileged society for others. Both are harmful for all of us.
