Komedia website synopsis
The UK Green Film Festival 2013 will bring award-winning feature films, premieres, shorts, guest speakers and Q&As to film fans and green thinkers up and down the country. A fast-growing festival inform, inspire, entertain and challenge.
In something of AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH for global litter louts, British documentary-maker Candida Brady has recruited Jeremy Irons to front a powerful denunciation of waste management and its malign consequences for our environment and health.
From a Mediterranean ecosystem irrevocably damaged by a Lebanese landfill that grows by 80 tonnes a day, to the French town with dioxin levels 13,000 times the allowable maxima, Brady briskly provides ample evidence of the scandal and its international scale, also exposing the industrial lobbying that persuades governments – including ours – to ignore it.
With his silky baritone and commanding on-screen presence, Irons is a persuasive advocate for the cause – indeed, he’s listed as co-producer – and the last section of TRASHED judiciously offers some hope by detailing solutions that can and must be implemented.
I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
