⊂ FILM ⊃
In the docu-freature TRASHED, a Blenheim Films production, produced and directed by British filmmaker Candida Brady (Madam and the Dying Swan), Jeremy Irons investigates the extent and impact of waste—from global warming and polluted oceans, to the increasing burden on human health. Stunning scenes of beautiful landscapes overrun with trash highlight the harsh realities of our consumption.

TRASHED premiered at Cannes Film Festival in 2012 to overwhelmingly positive critical reviews.
