Richmond Library Documentary Festival

Monday 9 November 2020

Yes, you heard that right – there is a Documentary Festival taking place right here in Richmond! 

Grab friends and family members and come along to one, two, three, or all four of the fabulous film offerings in our first ever documentary festival. 

The first film we will be showing is Landfill Harmonic on Monday 16 November at 6.00pm 

This documentary is for those of you who are into music and recycling and enjoy a heartwarming tale of success against all odds. Landfill Harmonic is a multiple award winning film about 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. But 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 is a testimony to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit. In other words, it’s exactly the kind of film you should be watching in these turbulent times. 

The other films we will be showing are Van Gogh & Japan on Monday 23 November, The Pollinators on Monday 30 November and Fame High on Monday 7 December - all showing at 6.00pm in the Constance Barnicoat room at Richmond Library. 

Space is limited so make sure you book your seats asap. You can do this by emailing or by talking to a library staff member.
