About the film:
In the documentary, 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.
Filmed in 20 locations around the world, ‘A Plastic Ocean’ documents in beautiful and chilling detail the global effects of plastic pollution and introduces workable technology and policy solutions that can, if implemented in time, change things for the better.
