Meaningful Movies Returns!
October 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
In partnership with Park Church in Elmira and the People for a Health Environment, the Friends of the Chemung River Watershed is proud to support the return of the FREE documentary film series: “Meaningful Movies”!
This month’s film is “The Story of Plastic”, a 2019 documentary film directed by Deia Schlosberg (Run time 95 minutes).
“The Story of Plastic is a searing exposé, uncovering the ugly truth behind plastic pollution and the false solution of plastic recycling. Different from every other plastic documentary you’ve seen, THE STORY OF PLASTIC presents a cohesive timeline of how we got to our current global plastic pollution crisis and how the oil and gas industry has successfully manipulated the narrative around it. From the extraction of fossil fuels and plastic disposal to the global resistance fighting back, THE STORY OF PLASTIC is a life changing film depicting one of the world’s most pressing environmental issues.” – (Quoted from TheStoryofStuff).
“The Story of Plastic shows us a hidden crisis of global scale in our oceans. It destroys the myth that plastic always gets recycled. It exposes the machinations of the fossil carbon industry that have made us all highly dependent on plastic. And it gives us hope that alternatives are possible.” – Christopher Bystroff, Professor, Biological Sciences, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Chair of the Green Sanctuary Committee, Albany Unitarian Universalist Society.
Please join us on Wednesday, October 27th at 7:00PM at Park Church for this FREE event! No registration required, but MASKS ARE REQUIRED to attend. Please arrive a bit before our 7:00PM showtime.
