Mill Valley 2019
DOC NYC, Hot Springs Doc, Wild & Scenic, Annapolis, Mountainfilm
An in-depth look at America’s perpetually increasing plastic pollution problem.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Plastic, a seemingly indispensable product, has wrought all sorts of innovations, but at what cost? The plastic industry’s success depends on consumers discarding the product and purchasing new items, creating an endless supply of litter that lingers forever. Filmmaker Deia Schlosberg’s incredibly detailed investigation into the plastic-production pipeline will shock, horrify, and forever change your perception on recycling. Timely and critical, this film is a must-see for anyone who uses this infamous product.
