Award-winning documentary, Trashed to be screened at Bigelow Center

The new Fairfield Civic Association will present the documentary film, Trashed Thursday, Sept. 1, at 6:30 p.m., at the Bigelow Center, 100 Mona Terrace. Cost, at $5, includes dinner served at 5:30 p.m. A question and answer session will follow the film. Advance registration is required by calling 203-256-3166. Dinner will include options for vegetarians.

The film Trashed was an official selection of the Cannes Festival in 2012. However, its message is still relevant today. Jeremy Irons looks at the risks to the food chain and environment through pollution of our air, land and sea by waste. It is a global conversation and features interviews with scientists as well as others whose livelihoods have been affected by waste pollution.

According to the film’s official synopsis. “The film analyzes the causes and effects of the seemingly innocuous act of “taking out the garbage” while showcasing the 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.”

Trashed ends on a message of hope by showing how the risks to our survival can easily be averted through sustainable, non-polluting approaches that provide more employment than many waste industry methods include.

The New York Times quoted: “That plastic water bottle in our hands will feel as dangerous as a Molotov cocktail.” This film promises to be riveting and very thought-provoking. The Fairfield Civic Association is a not-for-profit, non-partisan group of citizens dedicated to the betterment of Fairfield. The Bigelow Center for Senior Activities is happy to offer this documentary and collaborate with the Fairfield Civic Association.
