About The Show

Spanning three continents, The Story of Plastic illustrates the ongoing global plastic catastrophe: fields full of garbage, veritable mountains of trash; rivers and seas clogged with waste; and skies choked with the poisonous emissions from plastic production and processing.

The film features interviews with experts and activists on the frontlines of the fight, revealing the disastrous consequences of the flood of plastic smothering ecosystems and poisoning communities around the world –and the global movement rising up in response.

With original animation, archival industry footage starting in the 1930s and first-person accounts, the film distils a complex problem that is increasingly affecting the planet’s and its residents’ well-being.
