"Garbage! The Revolution Starts at Home"
This film is a feature documentary that describes how an average North American family impacts the environment through their production of garbage.
After his son's birth, Andrew Nisker (writer and director) felt compelled to examine the average urban family's relationship with waste. The film documents the McDonald family's experience after they agree to keep every scrap of garbage that they create for three months. Nisker then takes them (and us) to find out where it all goes and what it's doing to the world.
From the website: "Everyday life under a microscope has never been so revealing. By the end of this trashy odyssey, you are truly inspired to revolutionize your lifestyle for the sake of future generations." http://www.garbagerevolution.com/
This timely 75 minute film will be followed by a discussion.
