FILM AND TALK

A Plastic Ocean:

Film starts 4pm - 5.45pm

An opportunity to watchthe story of a filmmaker and a world record free-diver as they travel the earth discovering the shocking impact plastic is having on our oceans and the marine animals that live there.​

'A Plastic Ocean’ Behind the Scenes
Start 6.15pm - 7.16pm

Producer Jo Ruxton will talk about her 8-year journey to make the multi-award-winning documentary feature, ‘A Plastic Ocean’.  She will show clips from the film including unseen footage, talk about the lessons she learned as the storyline continued to change and evolve and why she never gave up even when there was no funding in sight to continue production and finish the film.  

Filming took place in 22 locations around the world and shows how the scourge of our plastic waste is affecting communities as well as every living creature in the ocean.  

It ends with a message that is impossible to ignore and shows the many solutions that can turn the tide on this problem and restore the balance.
