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.
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.
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 can't even begin to explain the impact this film has had on me. It has forced me to question my consumption of single-use plastic in a way that has indeed resulted in true change. Thank you Adam Leipzig, Jo Ruxton, Craig Leeson, and Tanya Streeter.
