I watched this film last year at the Vancouver International Film Festival. The director, Ian, was there to ask questions at the end.
It’s kind of funny, but what I remember most from this documentary was that most of the scientists studying the harmful effects of plastic had actively decided to cut it out of their own lives in terms of food packaging. That says something doesn’t it? The guy who studies whether or not plastic packaging leeches chemicals doesn’t use plastic water bottles or non-stick frying pans for his own family. Then, during the Q and A, someone asked Ian if he had changed his lifestyle as a result of this film he said “not really”.
Guess we can all make our own decisions.
Really interesting film though. And one that is really nicely shot and provides lots of hopeful stories to balance the bleak ones.
