Special Screening of Trashed film at Cannes
UK filmmaker Candida Brady's documentary Trashed, featuring actor Jeremy Irons looks at the growing global crisis of trash, highlighting how human health and the environment are threatened by the pollution from burning and discarding waste. Trashed will receive a special screening at the Cannes film festival, which runs from May 16-27.
The film is a global conversation from Iceland to Indonesia between Jeremy Irons and scientists, politicians and ordinary individuals whose health and livelihoods have been fundamentally affected by practices such as landfills and incinerators. Visually and emotionally the film is both horrific and beautiful: an interplay of human stories and ecological disruption. But it ends on a message of hope: showing how the risk to our survival can be averted through sustainable pathways that provide economic solutions while protecting our air, water and food resources.
