….not like that….
Here is what he has to say about the film:
“We’ve made this movie because there are so many people who feel strongly the urgent need for the problem of ‘waste’ and ‘sustainability’ to be addressed. There is an equally urgent need for the most imaginative and productive solutions to this troublesome subject to be understood and shared by as many communities as possible throughout the world.”
And here is a sneak peek at the trailer:
I have only seen the trailer, but just from that, this is obviously a pretty powerful film, designed to make us think about exactly what we are buying and what we are throwing away, and the effect it has on our planet (kind of what I am trying to do in my own small way with My Make Do and Mend Year-great minds think alike, Mr Irons…!) As you will know if you read my Scared post, I find a lot of this stuff really quite panic inducing, but on the website and the blurb about the film, there is a promise of hope and solutions at the end, so I hope it will be inspiring as well…
AND if that’s not enough, there will be a Q&A afterwards chaired by Emma Croft from the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, with a star-packed panel including:
- Candida Brady-the DIRECTOR OF THE FILM no less
- Karen Cannard-Rubbish Queen and founder of the Rubbish Diet, and finalist in the Nesta Waste Reduction Challenge
- Sarah from Everyday Life on a Shoestring-who is “attempting to live life with frugal simplicity in Wiltshire” and doing a cracking job of it, as well as blogging and being a Champion Waste Watcher
- And maybe, if there’s room, little old me!
What more could you want from a night out..??!
Seriously, it should be really great, and I am looking forwards to seeing the film, and taking part in the discussion afterwards.
