Cannes Film Festival is coveted affair sure to launch any filmmaker into an echelon of greatness not to be disregarded.  The festival usually announces their lineup in early April but reserves spots for late additions.  On April 30, one of those late invitations went to the new documentary film, “Trashed” starring Jeremy Irons and directed by Candida Brady.  The message of this film can also be thought of as better late than never as it explores what the heck happens to our trash on a big picture global wide scale.


Part of the adventure involves a stop in San Francisco.  The “Trashed” team spent two days filming with Recology, SF’s trash master, and lauded them for their work in waste reduction.  Enjoy the new trailer below posted on today’s blog.  Hopefully the entire world can learn a thing or two from the innovative waste reduction work that is done in our little seven square mile piece of paradise.  And kudos to Cannes for including such an important film among their selective and prestigious ranks.
