Official film description...
We live in the Age of Plastic. It's cheap, it's practical, and it's everywhere – from the highest mountains to the hottest deserts, from the North Pole to the South Pole. It's even part of us – inside our blood.
Should we be worried?
In the tradition of Michael Moore and Morgan Spurlock, this feisty yet informative documentary takes us on a journey around the globe – from the Moroccan Sahara to the middle of the Pacific Ocean, from a factory in China to the highest peaks of the Alps – to reveal the far-flung reach of plastic. Interviews with the world's foremost experts in biology, pharmacology, and genetics shed light on the perils of plastic to our environment and expose the truth of how plastic affects our bodies…and the health of future generations.
“Plastic Planet is that rare call-to-action documentary that might rouse viewers to do something more than nod their heads in agreement. A methodically researched yet engaging examination of the environmental and health problems associated with plastic.” – VarietyAwards: 1 win & 1 nomination.
