About the Film

The film presents Academy Award-winner Jeremy Irons on a world tour as he discovers the pressing issues surrounding waste and sustainability. The beauty of our planet from space forms a violent contrast to the scenes of human detritus across the globe. Vast landscapes in China are covered in tons of rubbish. The wide waters of the Ciliwung River in Indonesia are now barely visible under a never-ending tide of plastic. Children swim among leaking bags; mothers wash in the sewage-filled supply. Each year, we now throw away fifty-eight billion disposable cups, billions of plastic bags, 200 billion litres of water bottles, billions of tons of household waste, toxic waste and e-waste. The film score for the project was composed and performed by another Academy Award-winner, Vangelis.
