An interesting new movie is being made documenting a slum in Paraguay that exists on top of a landfill. The horrid conditions would make one believe that the residents would have no use for music, something higher on Maslow’s Ladder than the basic necessities. But music and art cannot be denied. Check out the trailer for this amazing story here:
Director of the Landfill Harmonic, Favio Chavez, sums it up this way:
“People realize that we shouldn’t throw away trash carelessly. Well, we shouldn’t throw away people either.”
Worth remembering at this time of year and always.
