Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

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

Join Pentangle Arts Council and Sustainable Woodstock for a monthly documentary film screening as part of our “Climate Change and Sustainability” series which usually takes place on the 4th Tuesday of every month. Free admittance. Recommended donation of $10. Proceeds go to support Pentangle.
