RISE UP: Landfill Harmonic (short film: Ether Antenna)
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 community, Favio must find a way to keep the orchestra intact and provide a source of hope for their town. The film is a testimony to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit.
ETHER ANTENNA (short film)
Inspired by Buddhist tales and set to the tune of Pauline Anna Strom’s astral electronic soundscapes, Australian new media artist Michael Candy's short film follows the story of 10 robot characters on a surreal journey through Nepal. The journey begins as robots are birthed from a sacred tree into the
pure streams of water beginning at Muktinath and follows their journey
toward the polluted rivers of Kathmandu, where a bipedal robot (human)
is birthed from an angel (drone) to reign chaos on the robotic creatures
as it collects their souls. Designed and built on residency at the Robotics Association of Nepal in 2016, all robot characters were developed to act specifically as puppets and carry out precise interactions through different scenes and scenarios.
