A Plastic Ocean (PG) ( Release 2017) has been labelled ‘The most important film of our time’ by Sir David Attenborough. 4 years in the making and it is evident the lengths that the production team went to get to the real truth about marine plastic pollution – its impact on oceans world-wide, how plastic is devastating marine wildlife and the flow on effects to humans when we come into contact with plastic or consume seafood.
Storyline: “A PLASTIC OCEAN begins when journalist Craig Leeson, searching for the elusive blue whale, discovers plastic waste in what should be pristine ocean. In this adventure documentary, Craig teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers, and they travel to twenty locations around the world over the next four years to explore the fragile state of our oceans, uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect.” - Demand Film
