Landfill Harmonic is heartwarming film featuring a unique orchestra in South America made up entirely of instruments made from scrap heap rubbish.

The Recycled Orchestra is the creation of Favio Chávez, a landfill worker and musician from Paraguay.

The film  features Chávez and an inspiring group of children beating the odds in the poverty stricken town of Cateura.

Cateura exists virtually on top of a landfill site where residents make their livings recycling and selling other people’s rubbish.

Situated along the banks of the Paraguay River, 1,500 tons of waste is dumped in the area each day.
