Plastic Paradise is an independent documentary film that chronicles Angela Sun’s personal 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. Along the way she encounters scientists, celebrities, 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.
This is the official description from the film’s website or IMDb page.
“[Plastic Paradise] is currently making the rounds at film festivals but should find a home on television, where it will invigorate the dialogue about the damage that modern technology is doing to the planet we all inhabit.” – Stephen Farber, The Hollywood Reporter
“From its alarming introduction to its startling realizations, Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch provides some much-needed factual exposure of the environmental impact of plastics and a first-hand glimpse of the continent of trash collecting in the south Pacific gyre currents.” – Jordan S., The Alternative Consumer
