HOME // CANDIDA BRADY
"It was researching the work of some extraordinary people who have been dealing with the issue of waste for years that finally compelled me to make this film"
Candida Brady has just completed two years of intense research and filming on her new documentary feature TRASHED that will receive a Special Screening at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
In 2009 Brady produced and directed Madam and the Dying Swan with her partner Titus Ogilvy, a film that rediscovered the lost steps of ballet's most revered solo, Anna Pavlova's Dying Swan, which was premiered at the British Film Institute in August 2012.
The British filmmaker and journalist's work has taken her around the world. While working for the UK's national press she reported on many leading events as well as initiating campaigns for legislative changes in animal trading and welfare.
She founded her film company, Blenheim Films, in 1996, and has produced and directed documentaries on a variety of subjects including a ten year project following a breakthrough treatment for HIV and AIDS.
In 2012 Candida completed her first solo documentary feature film, TRASHED, which follows Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons on a world tour as he discovers the pressing issues surrounding waste and sustainability. The film score for the project was composed and performed by Academy Award winner Vangelis.
