Trashed is a provocative investigation of one of the fastest growing industries in North America: the garbage business. The film examines a fundamental element of modern American culture - the disposal of what our society defines as “waste.” This is an issue influenced by every American, most of whom never consider the consequences, nor, it seems, the implications to our biosphere.
At times humorous, but deeply poignant, Trashed examines the American waste stream fast approaching a half billion tons annually. The film analyzes the causes and effects of the seemingly innocuous act of “taking out the garbage” while showcasing individuals, activists, corporate and advocacy groups working to affect change and reform the current model. Trashed is an informative and thought-provoking film everyone interested in the future of sustainability should see.

Biography of Director Candida Brady:
In 2009, Candida Brady produced and directed Madam and the Dying Swan with her partner Titus Ogilvy, a film that rediscovered the lost steps of ballet's most revered solo, Anna Pavlova's “Dying Swan,” which was premiered at the British Film Institute in August 2012.
The British filmmaker and journalist's work has taken her around the world. While working for the UK's national press, Candida reported on many leading events as well as initiating campaigns for legislative changes in animal trading and welfare. She founded her film company, Blenheim Films, in 1996, and has produced and directed documentaries on a variety of subjects including a ten-year project following a breakthrough treatment for HIV/AIDS. In 2012, Candida completed her first solo documentary feature film, Trashed, which follows Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons on a world tour as he discovers the pressing issues surrounding waste and sustainability. The film score was composed and performed by Academy Award winner Vangelis.
