By popular demand, we have a further screening of this stunning and memorable film dealing with the realities of plastic pollution, particularly poignant as we live near Lyme Bay.  Here is the link to a preview. 
The winner of 9 film festival awards, ‘A Plastic Ocean’ is an adventure documentary shot on more than 20 locations over the past 4 years. Explorers Craig Leeson and Tanya Streeter and a team of international scientists reveal the causes and consequences of plastic pollution and share solutions.

“The wave of change starts with YOU.”

Craig Leeson, the Director, says, “If you do not know, then you cannot care. With knowing comes caring.  By raising this issue we hope to begin a discourse on the problem that will promote and invoke change.”

After the film, we are very fortunate to have Anne Baker leading a Q&A. An inspirational speaker, she sailed as part of the eXXpedition crew across the Atlantic and Round Britain (2017), undertaking research into ocean plastic pollution.  “The film has some very hard hitting messages and every time I see it, a different part resonates with me. We could easily through our hands up in despair about the problem, but I am optimistic that with a multifaceted approach to changing our relationship with plastic, specifically single-use plastic, we can begin to turn the tide. “
