2013-10-03

Thousands of miles away from civilization, Midway Atoll is in one of the most remote places on earth. And yet it's become ground zero for The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, syphoning plastics from three distant continents. In this independent documentary film, journalist/filmmaker and Reef Check EcoDiver Angela Sun travels on a personal journey of discovery to uncover this mysterious phenomenon. Along the way she meets scientists (including Reef Check's Executive Director, Dr. Gregor Hodgson), researchers, influencers, and volunteers whom shed light on the effects of our rabid plastic consumption and learns the problem is more insidious than we could have ever imagined.
