REVIEW FOR ADDICTED TO PLACTIC - DOCUMENTARY BY IAN CONNACHER
The world may not come to an end, after all; there is hope, says this film about how the rising tide of plastic waste isn't an irreversible calamity.
As part of monthly screening of documentaries under 'Point Of View', Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad, in collaboration with the Documentary Circle of Hyderabad and the Alliance Francaise, is screening "Addicted To Plastic", on 27th November, at the Goethe Zentrum office.
Addicted To Plastic is a feature-length documentary by Ian Connacher, about solutions to plastic pollution. The documentary encompasses 3 years of filming in 12 countries on 5 continents, including 2 trips to the middle of the Pacific Ocean where plastic debris accumulates.
The film details plastic's path over the last 100 years, and provides expert interviews on practical and cutting-edge solutions to recycling, toxicity and biodegradability. These solutions - which include plastic made from plants - aim to provide viewers with a hopeful perspective about our future with plastic.
The film takes a look plastic's environmental impacts, providing glimpses of the detritus polluting our oceans and contaminating marine life, to the human costs of trash pickers in India trying to eke out a living beside burning landfills. Woven into these images are inspiring stories of people who are trying to find solutions - on all scales - to the plastic problem.
