The eighties gave us an iconic cinema adaptation of the Ray Nelson sci-fi short story Eight O'Clock in the Morning; the film version was called They Live. Truth or Trash is a short film that endeavours to weave the same narrative - the story of a man finding a pair of sunglasses that reveals to him a truth about society buried somewhere deep under subliminal messaging and media propaganda.
