Turn Lyme Green to screen ‘A Plastic Ocean’

BY popular demand, eco-group Turn Lyme Green will screen the film ‘A Plastic Ocean’ once again on Friday, May 25.

The screening will be held at Lyme Regis Baptist Church Hall, opening at 6.45pm for a 7pm start. Entry is free but donation would be welcome and refreshments will be available.

The winner of nine film festival awards, ‘A Plastic Ocean’ is an adventure documentary shot on more than 20 locations over the past four years. Explorers Craig Leeson and Tanya Streeter and a team of international scientists reveal the causes and consequences of plastic pollution and share solutions. 

After the film, Anne Baker will be leading a discussion. She sailed as part of the expedition crew across the Atlantic and around Britain, undertaking research into ocean plastic pollution.

Anne commented: “The film has some very hard hitting messages and every time I see it, a different part resonates with me. We could easily throw our hands up in despair about the problem, but I am optimistic that with a multifaceted approach to changing our relationship with plastic, specifically single-use plastic, we can begin to turn the tide.

Film director Craig Leeson said: “If you do not know, then you cannot care. With knowing comes caring. By raising this issue we hope to begin a discourse on the problem that will promote and invoke change.”
