The Smog of the Sea
June 25, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Movie: The Smog of the Sea
Algalita is presenting a free screening of THE SMOG OF THE SEA, a documentary from filmmaker Ian Cheney that chronicles a research expedition through the Sargasso Sea. Stay after to hear Captain Charles Moore speak about his recent voyage to the South Pacific Gyre!
After years of hearing about ocean “garbage patches,” the crew of the 5 Gyres SEA Change research expedition is stunned to learn they are actually a “fog” of microplastics — trillions of barely visible shards—permeating the world’s oceans. How do you stop a fog? Using sparkling underwater cinematography, an original score by Jack Johnson and shipmate Simon Beins, and live-action footage of the crew’s research, THE SMOG OF THE SEA makes an artful call to action for rethinking single-use plastic.
The movie and talk will take place at CMA in the John M. Olguin auditorium.
