The film A Plastic Ocean, is a new feature-length adventure documentary that brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle.
More than eight million tonnes of plastic is dumped into the world's oceans every year.
In A Plastic Ocean, an international team of adventurers, researchers, and ocean ambassadors go on a mission around the globe to uncover the truth about what is truly lurking beneath the surface of our seemingly pristine oceans.
The adventurers have captured never-before-seen images of marine life, plastic pollution, and its ultimate consequences for human health. It turns out we can’t use plastic once and throw it away without harming humans and animals.
The film’s message raises the awareness of plastic pollution and the existing solutions.
A Plastic Ocean is an adventure documentary shot on more than 20 locations over the past 4 years. Explorers Craig Leeson and Tanya Streeter and a team of international scientists reveal the causes and consequences of plastic pollution and share solutions.
The community is invited to the film night where they will also find out what is happening at a local level, and how they can be a part of the solution.
