Trashed.jpgFollow Jeremy Irons on an emotional journey that looks closely at the consequences of our ever-growing piles of trash. From vast landscapes in China to a small boat in the North Pacific, Irons guides us through beautiful landscapes that are being ruined by our wasteful habits. An urgent score by Academy Award winning composer Vangelis compels us to act. At the same time as exposing the consequences of our over-consumption, writer/director Candida Brady has gone in search of solutions. This film conveys both the horror of our current situations and the hope that things can change. Trashed profiles San Francisco’s rush to Zero Waste and has received international recognition, with special screening at the 2012 Cannes Festival. Be among the first in the Bay Area to see it.

Screening: June 02, 2013 at New People Cinema.

Discussion with: Jack Macy, Senior Commercial Zero Waste Coordinator, San Francisco Department of the Environment
