The next film in our Environmental Justice Film Series will be shown on Thursday, January 17 at 7:00 PM. (2016). A PLASTIC OCEAN begins when journalist Craig Leeson, searching for the elusive blue whale, discovers plastic waste in what should be pristine ocean. In this adventure documentary, Craig teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers, and they travel to twenty locations around the world over the next four years to explore the fragile state of our oceans, uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect. The film is 102 minutes, and after we watch it, we’ll discuss what actions we can take on this and other environmental justice issues.

This event is hosted by Berrien UU Board Member Harvey Johnson and is free and open to the public. Free popcorn is included; BYOB encouraged. Doors open at 6:30 PM, so come early, get yourself settled and enjoy some popcorn before the show begins at 7:00!
