A screening of documentary ‘Landfill Harmonic’ is happening at Bourke Street Public School this Saturday evening (doors 5pm) to raise money for *drum roll* …us! Tickets can be purchased through the school or at the door on the night for the generous price of $3 individually or $10 for a family ticket.
“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 community, Favio must find a way to keep the orchestra intact and provide a source of hope for their town. The film is a testimony to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit.”
The kids at Bourke Street Public School have recently been focusing on making instruments out of recycled materials and wanted to wrap this term up with this inspiring documentary. Thank you to the Bourke Street Public School Music Committee for kindly organising this event as a fundraiser for the ACMF, we really appreciate it!
