Talk: ‘A Plastic Ocean’ – Behind the Scenes
6.15pm - 7.15pm
Producer Jo Ruxton will talk about her 8-year journey to make the multi-award-winning documentary feature, ‘A Plastic Ocean’. She will show clips from the film including unseen footage, talk about the lessons she learned as the storyline continued to change and evolve and why she never gave up even when there was no funding in sight to continue production and finish the film. Filming took place in 22 locations around the world and shows how the scourge of our plastic waste is affecting communities as well as every living creature in the ocean. It ends with a message that is impossible to ignore and shows the many solutions that can turn the tide on this problem and restore the balance.
