Trashed

Win­ner of Earth Grand Prix-Spe­cial Award at 2012 Tokyo Inter­na­tion­al Film Festival

Trashed (direct­ed by Can­di­da Brady) is a provoca­tive inves­ti­ga­tion of one of the fastest grow­ing indus­tries in North Amer­i­ca: the garbage busi­ness. On aver­age, Amer­i­cans throw out an aver­age of 4.5 pounds of garbage every sin­gle day. But where exact­ly does all this garbage end up? Peo­ple put out their garbage on trash col­lec­tion day and some­how it mag­i­cal­ly dis­ap­pears. But where does it go, real­ly? Nar­ra­tor Jere­my Irons sets out to dis­cov­er the extent and effects of the glob­al waste prob­lem, as he trav­els around the world to beau­ti­ful des­ti­na­tions taint­ed by pol­lu­tion. The film ana­lyzes the caus­es and effects of the seem­ing­ly innocu­ous act of “tak­ing out the garbage” while show­cas­ing the indi­vid­u­als, activists, cor­po­rate and advo­ca­cy groups work­ing to affect change and reform the cur­rent mod­el. This is a metic­u­lous, brave inves­tiga­tive jour­ney that takes us from skep­ti­cism to sor­row and from hor­ror to hope.
