Slum built on landfill turns its garbage into glorious music12/9/2012
You've heard the phrase, "One man's trash is another man's treasure," but it's never been as inspirational as in this teaser for the upcoming documentary "Landfill Harmonic." The film introduces the town of Cateura, a slum in Paraguay built atop a landfill where residents have created music from the trash heaped upon them. Scouring the rubbish, the determined music-lovers have built violins, cellos, and other classical instruments, resulting in the "Recycled Orchestra." The preview of the flick has been going wild online. Twitter user @NikkyHolmes said, "This made my day a little brighter" and @garyploski tweeted, "Things like this should go viral." Good news for you, Gary.
