About the Movie
A Plastic Ocean is a new feature-length adventure documentary that brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle. We thought we could use plastic once and throw it away with negligible impact to humans and animals. That turns out to be untrue. In A Plastic Ocean, an international team of adventurers, researchers, and Ocean ambassadors go on a mission around the globe to uncover the shocking truth about what is truly lurking beneath the surface of our seemingly pristine Ocean. The result will astound viewers–just as it did our adventurers–who captured never-before-seen images of marine life, plastic pollution, and its ultimate consequences for human health. During its four-year production period, A Plastic Ocean was filmed in 20 locations around the world in beautiful and chilling detail to document the global effects of plastic pollution–and introduce workable technology and policy solutions that can, if implemented in time, change things for the better.
This made me really think about how I consume plastics. I learned a lot of information and was shocked by what is presented. This is essential viewing for documentary fans. Great environmental doc in the spirit of Blackfish.
I had the privlidge of seeing an early cut of this film and it was an eye-openinging experience. We humans more often than not have no clue about how our habits impact this beautiful planet that we call home. What this film did was make me re-think by everyday consumption of plastic-based goods - from shopping bags, to bottled water, straws and more. Plastic in our oceans is not just a problem for marine life, it is a problem for human life. The chemicals released from plastic are indeed making their way into the human food chain. It's a real problem and one that is already having devastating results for all of us on this round mass of matter floating through space. This film provides an informative examination of the issue and will hopefully inspire more people to make a stand agains single-use plastic products.
The Ocean is Life
I knew my friend Craig was a good storyteller from the time I met him when I lived in Hong Kong and we shared drinks at the Foreign Correspondents Club. But he truly impressed me and I hope the rest of the world with this insightful look at a problem that affects not just those who care about the ocean and the environment, but the entire world. The story he tells here is all the more important given the state of political affairs in countries the world over where the environment usually takes a backseat to corporate profits. This film should be required viewing in every school in every country so people can see the damage caused in the name of "progress".
