Ocean Plastics: A BLUE Film Screening


Event Description

Join AMCS online for a screening of the plastics chapter from BLUE the Film, followed by a Q&A with star of the film – marine research scientist Jennifer Lavers.

BLUE takes us on a journey into the ocean realm, to see for ourselves this critical moment in time when the marine world is on a precipice. Featuring passionate advocates for ocean preservation, BLUE takes us into their world where the story of our changing ocean is unfolding. 

We meet those who are combating marine pollution and fighting for the protection of keystone species. This film comes at a time when we are making critical decisions that will decide the legacy we leave for generations to come. 

BLUE shows us there is a way each and every person can make a difference, and the time to act is now.
