TRASHED
2012, First Pond Entertainment, 98 min, USA, Dir: Candida Brady

It’s not every day you see Jeremy Irons sitting next to a mountain of garbage, but if humanity doesn’t change its ways, soon we may all be surrounded by refuse. The actor serves as host and executive producer of this informative documentary, which takes viewers from landfills in Lebanon and China to the polluted northern Pacific Ocean to show the effect of billions of tons of waste produced annually. With health and environmental experts weighing in, TRASHED also points the way to more sustainable practices than “bury or burn.” Featuring a score by Oscar-winning composer Vangelis.
