Trashed is an award-winning [1][2][3][4] documentary feature film, written and directed by British film-maker Candida Brady.[5] It follows actor Jeremy Irons as he investigates the global scale and impact of humanity's modern waste.[6] Sean Bobbitt (Hunger,[7] 12 Years a Slave[8]) is the film's Director of Photography.

Trashed was premiered at Cannes Film Festival in 2012 [10] where it was nominated for the Camera d'Or.[11] Since then it has been screened at the UK Houses of Parliament,[12] the Welsh Assembly,[13] the Scottish Parliament,[14] the European Parliament[15] and the French National Assembly.[16] It has been shown at film festivals across the world, from Sarajevo to Kuala Lumpur [17] and public screenings and educational forums worldwide,[18] from Yale[19] to Jakarta.[20]

Critical reactions to the film were overwhelmingly positive.[21] "...for all the poisonous truths in “Trashed,” there are also solid grass-roots solutions that, as presented, feel do-able and politically digestible...Crucial viewing for realists and alarmists both" (New York Daily News).[22]"(a) global crisis that's vividly, relentlessly detailed in the vital documentary "Trashed"" (LA Times).[23]" that plastic water bottle in your hand will feel as dangerous as a Molotov cocktail" (New York Times).[24]"Trashed is a documentary that needs to be seen, that needs to enter the mainstream. Because we’re (still) trashing the planet. We’ve heard this enough to stop thinking about the implications, to start humming to what’s become white noise - but Trashed rearticulates the message, volunteering a not just inconvenient but downright harrowing set of truths…." (Sabotage Times).[25]
