Starring Academy Award -inner Jeremy Irons and featuring an original score by Academy Award winner Vangelis, "Trashed" looks at the risks to the food chain and the environment through pollution of our air, land, and sea by waste. The film reveals surprising truths about very immediate and potent dangers to our health. It is a global conversation from Iceland to Indonesia between the film star Jeremy Irons and scientists, politicians, and ordinary individuals whose health and livelihoods have been fundamentally affected by waste pollution. Visually and emotionally the film is both horrific and beautiful; an interplay of human interest and political wake-up call.
TRASHED recently won the Toyota Earth Grand Prix Special Jury Prize at the Tokyo International Film Festival as well as the Audience Award for Movies that Matter at the Maui Film Festival.
