The Cambridge University Energy Network

Film Nights

17:00 Sunday, 16th February 2014. Cambridge Graduate Union

In collaboration with the Engineers Without Borders (EWB) we will focus on waste and its environmental impacts this time and screen "Trashed".

About the movie:

Trashed - No Place For Waste. 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. It is a global conversation from Iceland to Indonesia between the film star Jeremy Irons and scientists, politicians and ordinary individuals whose health and livelihoods have been fundamentally affected by waste pollution.

Visually and emotionally the film is both horrific and beautiful: an interplay of human interest 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'.

The event is free of charge and there will be popcorn, hot chocolate and soft drinks to accompany the movie.

We are looking forward to meeting plenty of you there.

The Cambridge University Energy Network is delighted to invite you all to our next documentary screening! We will show 'GASLAND' the 2010 multi-award winning documentary by Josh Fox on natural gas drilling by hydraulic fracturing and its impact on communities around the US.

In the words of Matthew Turner (ViewLondon): 'By turns shocking and deeply upsetting, Gasland is a powerful, well made eco-documentary that carries a vitally important message.'
