Synopsis: Every single piece of plastic that has ever been created since the 19th century is still somewhere on our planet. So, if it never goes away, where does it go?
This award-winning documentary feature is by journalist and filmmaker Angela Sun. It details her journey of discovery to one of the most remote places on Earth, Midway Atoll, to uncover the truth behind the mystery of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This ‘patch’ is thought to be up to 15,000,000 square kilometres.
Along the way she encounters scientists, industry, legislators and activists who shed light on what our society’s vast consumption of disposable plastic is doing to our oceans, and what it may be doing to our health.
