sm_TRASHED_MOVIE_POSTER_A3_WEB_V3563055_10150680024174300_531774117_n (1)In cooperation with the third annual One Earth Film Festival, The University of Illinois at Chicago is hosting a screening of the film "Trashed" at Gallery 400 (400 S. Peoria St., Chicago) on Wednesday, March 5 at 5:45-8 p.m. Reserve tickets.

The multi-award winning documentary, Trashed, starring Jeremy Irons, looks at the risks to the food chain and the environment through pollution of our air, land and sea by waste. The film reveals surprising truths about very immediate and potent dangers to our health. This is a global conversation between the film star Jeremy Irons and scientists, politicians and ordinary individuals whose health and livelihoods have been fundamentally affected by waste pollution.

Before the film, Gallery 400 will host a reception beginning at 5 p.m. While this pre-fest screening is FREE, seating is limited, so please reserve your ticket.

This film will be screened again at the the 2014 One Earth Film Festival on Saturday, March 8 at 6-8:15 p.m. at Roosevelt University, 425 S. Wacker, Room 611, Chicago, IL. Reserve a free ticket .

Visually and emotionally, the film is both horrific and beautiful as it fuses human interest story and political wake-up call. But it ends on a message of hope: showing how the risks to our survival can easily be averted through sustainable approaches that provide far more employment than the current "waste industry."

This film will be screened again at the the 2014 One Earth Film Festival on Saturday, March 8 at 6-8:15 p.m. at Roosevelt University, 425 S. Wacker, Room 611, Chicago, IL. Reserve a free ticket .
