Documentary About Food & Fashion Waste

In the documentary "UseLess", we try to find out why food and fashion waste has become a pressing social and environmental problem and what we can do to change it. The documentary is seen through the eyes of a young Icelandic mother who is trying to understand the issues and change her ways. Interviews with experts, designers, activists and producers shed light on the problem as well as offer many solutions to the audience.

For us, the film was only entertaining or instructive to a limited extent, as it outdoes it a little with numbers, facts and interviews and is also not able to set any highlights in cinematic terms.
