Landfill Harmonic  (2015)   NR  84 Minutes

Landfill Harmonic follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, a Paraguayan musical group that plays instruments made entirely out of garbage. When their story goes viral, the orchestra is catapulted into the global spotlight. Under the guidance of idealistic music director Favio Chavez, the orchestra must navigate a strange new world of arenas and sold-out concerts. However, when a natural disaster strikes their country, Favio must find a way to keep the orchestra intact and provide a source of hope for their town. The film is a testament to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit.

From the Oscar winner for “Best Documentary in 2015” to a feature film based on the true story of American "singer" Florence Foster Jenkins, the premiere season of the SJCT Summer Film Series features a variety of independent films and documentaries.

The series is the brainchild of islander Larry Soll, who says he has always liked independent films and always wanted to have the opportunity to see them on the island. And after SJCT’s projection and sound systems were revamped, it just seemed natural that the Whittier Theatre would be the perfect venue.

“The goal is to offer mind-broadening experiences for islanders, said Larry. “Some will be documentaries, others fantasies. Some will be funny, others not so much.”
