Built on a massive landfill site, the community of Cateura, Paraguay, has such limited resources that many of its citizens make their living by selling items recycled from the trash. But among this struggling population stands a beacon of hope: The Recycled Orchestra. The youth orchestra began with few instruments, so founder Favio Chávez turned to the self-taught instrument maker Cola to repurpose oil cans, scrap metal, wood and bottle caps in to working instruments. The orchestra travels the world with their recycled instruments, sometimes accompanying famous artists and appearing on television. Life seems hopeful — until trouble strikes at home. This inspiring documentary follows young people who make unbelievable music while living the motto: "The world sends us garbage... We send back music."

For generations since it was first published in 1943, Le Petit Prince has charmed both children and adults with its memorable story of a little prince from outer space and the airplane pilot he befriends. In this animated update inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's beloved novella, the nine-year-old Little Girl and her workaholic single mother move to a new neighbourhood so she can attend an elite prep school. The Little Girl is unable to make new friends — until one day when, with a loud bang, an airplane propeller lodges itself in the side of her house. Enter her elderly and eccentric neighbour, The Aviator, who opens the Little Girl's eyes to the power of imagination. The Aviator entrances her with the story of a pilot who, while stranded in the blazing desert, meets a young prince who has fallen to Earth from a tiny asteroid. Director Mark Osborne has recaptured Saint-Exupéry's magic and made the fable accessible to a new generation of young audiences.

Content Advisory: Some scenes may be frightening for young viewers.
