A Plastic Ocean

(Canada, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, United States of America ) 2016 | 102 minutes | Craig Leeson | English

Journalist Craig Leeson, searching for the elusive blue whale, discovers enormous tracts of plastic waste in what should be pristine ocean. Thus begins a four year adventure which sees Leeson and producer Jo Ruxton teaming up with free diver Tanya Streeter and working alongside an international team of scientists and researchers, to explore the fragile state of our oceans. In so doing, they uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution and reveal working solutions that need to be put into immediate effect.

"Equal parts insightful, frightful and cautiously hopeful, this documentary is a must-see." –Joni Blyth, oneroomwithaview.com

Premiere – Raindance, UK
