Presented by the Park School Parents’ Association, the Cultural Diversity Film & Discussion Series has been meeting since 1995. The purpose of the group is to provide a forum for parents, faculty, students, and members of the community to celebrate multiculturalism and to achieve a greater understanding of diversity issues. All events are free and open to the public.
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 their idealistic music director, the orchestra must navigate a strange new world of arenas and sold-out concerts. However, when a natural disaster strikes their community, they must find a way to keep the orchestra intact and provide a source of hope for their town. The film serves as a tool to inspire conversations about poverty, environmental awareness, creativity and sustainability – and is a testimony to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit.
Discussion will follow the screening. This event is free and open to the public.
