In one of South America’s poorest neighbourhoods, adjacent to a landfill, where an ordinary violin or a flute is more expensive than the average home, the children are forced to play instruments created from the waste the orchestra members find at the gigantic landfill. A lot can be made from what they scavenge there: violins, flutes, drums. Landfill Harmonic tells the moving story of this group of children. The poverty-stricken children of Caturea, Paraguay only knew their poor surroundings until environmental expert and music teacher Flavio Chavez decided to give them music lessons in 2006. By playing famous classical pieces by composers such as Beethoven and Mozart in the orchestra room, the 30 students can escape the abject poverty they live in. One of the young orchestra members says in the documentary that her life would be worthless without music. Thanks to the music, she travels the world now. The children have even played in the Netherlands.
