The University of Portsmouth Environment Network host a free screening of documentary film A Plastic Ocean at the Eldon Building in Winston Churchill Avenue on Thursday 23rd March 2017.

A Plastic Ocean is a new feature-length adventure documentary that brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle. We thought we could use plastic once and throw it away with negligible impact to humans and animals. The documentary details why we’re wrong.

In A Plastic Ocean, an international team of adventurers, researchers, and ocean ambassadors go on a mission around the globe to uncover the shocking truth about what is truly lurking beneath the surface of our seemingly pristine seas.

During its four-year production period, A Plastic Ocean was filmed in 20 locations around the world in beautiful and chilling detail to document the global effects of plastic pollution, and to introduce workable technology and policy solutions that can, if implemented in time, change things for the better.

This free film screening, which runs from 6:30pm to 9:00pm, is open for all to attend.

There will also be opportunities to talk to academic experts about topics related to the documentary: an extended question-and-answer session with resident experts on marine and microplastics will follow the screening.

Special guest David Jones from Plastic Oceans will also be on hand.

Though the screening is free, capacity is limited, so be sure to book your place through Eventbrite »
