Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch
Presented by Angela Sun
May 13, 2015 at the Tahoe Art Haus & Cinema
Two showings 5:30 & 7:30pm
Every single piece of plastic that has ever been created since the 19th century is still somewhere on our planet. So if it never goes away, where does it go? Thousands of miles away from civilization, Midway Atoll is in one of the most remote places on earth. And yet its become ground zero for The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, syphoning plastics from three distant continents. In this independent documentary film, journalist/filmmaker Angela Sun travels on a personal journey of discovery to uncover this mysterious phenomenon. Along the way she meets scientists, researchers, influencers, and volunteers who shed light on the effects of our rabid plastic consumption and learns the problem is more insidious than we could have ever imagined. A modified version of this movie will be featured at the 5 Gyres event.
