Off the food theme but we thought this film was so moving and inspiring … especially in the run up to Christmas [Researching her film The Story of Stuff, Annie Leonard discovered that, of the materials flowing through the consumer economy, only 1% remain in use six months after sale] ….

Landfill Harmonic is an upcoming feature-length documentary about a remarkable musical orchestra in Paraguay, where the musicians play instruments made from trash.

The film shows how trash and recycled materials can be transformed into beautiful sounding musical instruments, but more importantly, it explores the ingenuity and thrift of people versus the inanity of passive hyper-consumerism.
