Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch
Filmmaker, Angela Sun
Thousand miles away from civilization, Midway Atoll is one of the most remote places on earth. And yet it has become ground zero for The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, siphoning plastics from three distant continents. Journalist/filmmaker Angela Sun spent eight years on a personal journal to uncover this mysterious phenomenon. Q & A with the filmmaker will follow the 57-minute documentary.
