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?
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.
