It’s not often that best-in-class environmental movies are screened in Baltimore — and, for free. Hopefully you were able to watch “Merchants of Doubt” on Nov 5, but if not, check out the documentary “Plastic Ocean” on Nov. 14. Learn who’s behind today’s climate change silence, and why our oceans are more abuzz with pollution than sea life. Both films will be followed by expert panel discussions.
When: Tuesday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m.
Where: Senator Theater, located at 5904 York Road, Baltimore 21212. Free parking at Govans Presbyterian Church, located at 5828 York Road.
“Plastic Ocean” is an award-winning adventure documentary shot in more than 20 locations over the past four years. A worldwide sensation that has been screened in over 60 countries, even the United Nations viewed the powerful film this June in New York City.
Explorers Craig Leeson and Tanya Streeter and a team of international scientists reveal the causes and consequences of plastic pollution and share solutions. Produced by the nonprofit Plastic Oceans, they have a simple mission: Change the world’s attitude towards plastic within a generation. Watching “Plastic Ocean” may get us there.
