After proposals, letters, and meetings, we are happy to announce that Landfill Harmonic has been approved for screening in the Downey Civic Theatre. We at GlennFest are extremely grateful to our sponsor, the Downey Arts Coalition, for their efforts in making this screening a possibility.
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.
The film is Directed by Brad Allgood and Graham Townsley, and Co-Directed and Produced by Juliana Penaranda-Loftus. The screening will take place on Sunday, October 4th, at 3 p.m. at the Downey Civic Theatre.
