Het stortplaatsorkest musiceert op afval
Kinderen uit het Paraguayaanse dorp Cateura spelen klassieke muziek op instrumenten die gemaakt zijn met afval uit de plaatselijke afvalberg. Momenteel wordt er gewerkt aan Landfill Harmonic, een documentaire over dit opmerkelijke orkest. Producente Juliana Penaranda-Loftus:
We heard a story about an orchestra that was put together using recycled garbage in April of 2009, it was during our first research trip to Paraguay. In the summer 2010, Alejandra and I came back with director of photography and friend Tim Fabrizio. We arrived to do some initial filming in order to produce a trailer. During that trip, we met the first group of children who were part of the recycled Orchestra, those children are now playing with professional Orchestras. We have been following this story since then. We went back in 2011 and have gone twice in 2012. Now there is a new group of children that have joined the orchestra. We have witnessed the commitment that Favio Chavez (orchestra director) has towards these children of Cateura, their families and their community. There is a whole social process that happens behind running the orchestra. We have developed very strong ties with them during these years and this is a story that goes way beyond the screen.
