The invisible side of plastic

Prof. Audrius Klimas

Vast production and use of plastic products have saturated ecosystems with various kinds of plastic waste, which mainly consist of tiny, barely visible microplastics. For zooplankton, small plastic particles are indistinguishable from food and become a part of their diet, hence entering the food chain. Inevitably, the boundaries of the natural and the synthetic are starting to blur. The film illustrates current issues regarding plastic pollution and invites to speculate about possible future outcomes. Project was created in collaboration with Plastic Justice.
