The documentary “Trashed” follows actor Jeremy Irons as he investigates the global scale and impact of humanity’s consumerism and pollution. The film, written and directed by Candida Brady, is a call for action to resolve the issue of existing deposits and drastically reduce our consumption towards sustainable levels and zero waste, but also demonstrates how this is already being achieved successfully in many communities around the world.
A reception begins at 6:30 pm with the screening at 7 pm, followed by a conversation led by Memi Cardenas, the Senior Public Information Specialist at Austin Resource Recovery of the City of Austin. More information on the Facebook event page.
The screening is part of the “Controversy & Conversation” series, a collaboration between the Austin Public Library and the Humanities Institute’s Difficult Dialogues Program at the University of Texas.
Location: Austin Public Library, Terrazas Branch, 1105 East Cesar Chavez St., Austin, 78702
