A Plastic Ocean: We Need a Wave of Change

9/27/2017
6:30pm

Co-presented by The Wheeler Opera House and Aspen Center for Environmental Studies

A PLASTIC OCEAN – We Need A Wave of Change (86 mins)
(An International Ocean Film Tour Event)

A Plastic Ocean is a new feature-length adventure documentary that brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle. We thought we could use plastic once and throw it away with negligible impact to humans and animals. That turns out to be untrue.

In A Plastic Ocean, 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 results 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.

During its four-year production period, A Plastic Ocean was filmed in 20 locations around the world in beautiful and chilling detail to document the global effects of plastic pollution–and introduce workable technology and policy solutions that can, if implemented in time, change things for the better.

Following the film there will be a panel discussion at 8:00 PM moderated by Henry Lystad (International Ocean Film Tour) and featuring Chris Lane (ACES) and more panelists to be announced.
