Gifted at the Movies: Landfill Harmonic: A Symphony of the Human Spirit



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.
In this half-day session, we will watch the 2016 SXSW and AFI audience award winning film directed by Brad Allgood and Graham Townsley with a discussion of the documentary.
We will also examine teaching strategies that stimulate higher level and imaginative thinking that are critical in the development of gifted students as well as discuss the effects of poverty on low socioeconomic gifted children.
