A Plastic Ocean

“A Plastic Ocean” by Craig Leeson
 

Tuesday 30 May, 19:00 (Cinéma Gallerie)

Runtime: 102′

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.

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.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with:

  • Matjaž Malgaj – European Commission, DG ENVIRONMENT, Head of Unit for Marine Environment and Water Industry;
  • Maria Westerbos – Director, Plastic Soup Foundation;
  • Jo Ruxton – Producer of ‘A Plastic Ocean’.

The film is in English and has a run time of 1 hour and 42 minutes

 

Due to the large number of no-shows, we kindly ask you to register only if you are able to attend our event.

Registration on the night starts at 18:30
