Clean Bin Project documents couple’s competition to avoid consumerism
PARRY SOUND - The Films That Make You Think Film Club will host its second film of the 2014 season Tuesday, February 11 at 7 p.m. at the West Parry Sound District Museum with the Canadian feature, The Clean Bin Project.
“This film is fun and entertaining, while still dealing with a serious and complicated subject.” said Glen Hodgson, the film club’s founder, “by making the issue personal and following the challenges faced by fairly average people when they try and reduce their waste, it makes it easy to relate to the film.”
The Clean Bin Project challenges us to consider if it is possible to live completely waste free, says Hodgson in a news release.
In this multi-award winning, festival favourite, partners Jen and Grant go head-to-head in a competition to see who can swear off consumerism and produce the least garbage.
Their light-hearted competition is set against a darker examination of the problem waste.
Even as Grant and Jen start to garner interest in their project, they struggle to find meaning in their minuscule influence on the large-scale environmental impacts of our “throw-away society.”
Described as An Inconvenient Truth meets Super Size Me, The Clean Bin Project features laugh-out-loud moments, stop motion animations, and unforgettable imagery.
Captivating interviews with renowned artist Chris Jordan, and TED lecturer captain Charles Moore, make this film a fun and inspiring call to individual action that speaks to crowds of all ages.
“The Clean Bin Project gives us something to think about,” added Hodgson, “and as an added bonus, because Grant and Jen are Canadian, most of their revelations and suggestions can be easily adapted to anyone in our local communities.”
The February film also offers the last opportunity for regular movie-goers to purchase a year long membership allowing them to see all of the films in the line-up for half price. The offer is only available for January and February.
This film series is non-partisan and designed, as the title suggests, to inspire people to think about some key issues that we are facing our communities, our country and our world. Admission is a suggested donation of ten dollars for adults and seven for students and seniors and tickets are available at the door unless the film is sold out.
