The Green Film Series brings Landfill Harmonic to Gibsons and Sechelt for Earth Day. The film will be shown in Sechelt at the Sechelt Arts Centre at 7:30 pm on Thursday, April 21 and at the Hertiage Playhouse in Gibsons on Friday, April 22 at 7:30 pm. Admission is by donation.
Landfill Harmonic follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, a paraguayan musical youth group of kids that live next to one of South America’s largest landfills. This unlikely orchestra plays music from instruments made entirely out of garbage.
When their story goes viral, the orchestra is catapulted into the global spotlight. With the guidance of their music director, they must navigate this new world of arenas and sold out concerts. However, when a natural disaster devastates their community, the orchestra provides a source of hope for the town. This film is a testament to the trans-formative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit.
The Green Film Series is presented by Rhizome Up! Media Society.
