A Plastic Ocean
After years in the making A Plastic Ocean is due to be released in January 2017. In this adventure documentary journalist Craig Leeson travels around the globe to uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect.
The film’s journey begins with director and writer Craig Leeson in his search for the elusive blue whale, who unexpectedly discovers significant plastic waste in a part of the world that should boast pristine waters. Teaming up with former BBC Blue Planet producer Jo Ruxton and World Champion free-diver Tanya Streeter, Leeson and his crew travelled to over twenty locations around the globe over the course of four years to document how deep our plastic problem truly goes.
When this film hits the big screens in January next year – it is truly not to be missed. With an estimated 8 million tons of plastic being dumped in our oceans each year, the time to act and be a part of the wave of change is now. Huxton is hopeful that the documentary will have the same ripple effect as Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth did for climate change in 2006, and Sir David Attenborough has described it as “the most important film of our time.”
A Plastic Ocean will be available to the general public early next year, but for the meantime we invite you to get a taste by checking out the trailer. To find out more about the film, including how you can get involved in screening and promoting it, click here.
