Join us for the next Chicago Filmmakers Green Screen Environmental Series: TRASHED Directed by Candida Brady. UK, 2011, 98 min
Trashed, the Cannes Film Festival hit starring Jeremy Irons, looks at the risks to the food chain and the environment through pollution of our air, land and sea by waste and garbage. Revealing surprising truths about very immediate and potent dangers to our health, this film launches a global conversation from Iceland to Indonesia between scientists, politicians and ordinary individuals whose health and livelihoods have been fundamentally affected by waste pollution. Trashed is at once visually and emotionally horrific and beautiful: an interplay of a human interest and political wake-up call. Yet from the depths of the dumps erupts a message of hope, showing how the risks to our survival can easily be averted through sustainable approaches that provide far more employment than the current "waste industry."
Chicago Filmmakersis the organizer for this event and their suggested admission is $8, but for CIDFilms members it's $7 (please mention that you are the member). All proceeds go to benefit the Independent Filmmaking Community.
Welcome film/movie fans! - Join us to meet other local Indie & Documentary film fans. Discuss and recommend indi films, documentaries, and other movies to one another.
The idea is to watch the films that pose various moral/ethical questions or expend awareness about different issues that our society and individuals are facing. Therefore we will be focusing on watching Independent or Documentary films rather than watching typical Hollywood movies that are mostly for entertaining purposes.
Choosing documentary films we will primarily focus on the following topics: Personal Growth, Self Improvement/Empowerment, Spirituality, Global Warming, Ecological/Environmental Issues, Sustainable/Green Technologies, Alternative Energy, Corporate/Industrial/Governmental abuse, Ethical/Moral issues, Vegetarianism/Veganism, Genetically Modified Food & GMO, Alternative Healing. However, we are open to any kind of films/movies that raise any ethical and other important topics suggested by our members.
Please feel free to recommend us movies/films that you would like to watch, movies/films that you watched and would like to watch again, or just movies/films that you suggest to watch for others.
