TRASHED

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 Filmmakers is 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.

This is another joint event between Chicagoland Independent & Documentary Films (CIDFilms) and Chicagoland Green & Eco-living (CGE).

    I completely agree with Charles, the film was well made but missed the mark on suggesting a solution to the ( seemingly hopeless ) mess we've made.

    The film was extremely informative! Now that we have a "world view" of the problem, how to you confront big business. Great film. Too long however.
