Event Description

1 hour director's cut world premier of critically acclaimed environmental documentary "Aqua Seafoam Shame" followed by 15 minute Q and A with the co-director.

Aqua Seafoam Shame is a multi-nominated documentary with multiple nominations which explores the horrific diagnosis that 25% of our planet's surface is now garbage landfill, due to the pacific garbage patch and plastics. In 20 years our world could end up with no coral reefs - which means our oceans will revert back to the primordial sludge it was before creatures walked on land. What, if anything, can be done to backpedal the Earth from this cataclysmic trajectory?

Scary stats:
90% of the big fish in the sea and 20% of our coral reefs have gone extinct

12% of our land is protected but less than 1% of our oceans are

70% of rivers between Texas and New Jersey are too polluted for fish

20 Billion pounds of plastic end up in the seas each year

46,000 pieces of plastic are in every square mile of ocean

One critic hails it as possibly the most important documentary ever made.
