To celebrate Plastic Free July, North Queensland Conservation Council is hosting a free screening of THE STORY OF PLASTIC under the stars in their leafy backyard in Railway Estate.
Arrive anytime from 6pm for a 6.30pm start. The film goes for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, and afterwards we will host a Q&A session with Diana Condylas from Plastic Free Townsville (an initiative of Boomerang Alliance), Craig Turner from Tangaroa Blue and Ashlee Stockwell – Townsville City Council’s Waste and Recycling Educator.
Bring your own comfy camping chair, beanbag, or picnic blanket but chairs will be available for those who do not have their own. The health of others is a top priority, so please provide your own food and only share it with your family group.
If you live outside of Townsville but would like to participate, please get in touch, as there may be a possibility for a virtual screening and we can capture the Q&A discussion via Zoom or Facebook Live if there is demand for it.
About the film:
THE STORY OF PLASTIC takes a sweeping look at the man-made crisis of plastic pollution and the worldwide effect it has on the health of our planet and the people who inhabit it. The film illustrates the ongoing catastrophe and features interviews with experts and activists on the front lines of the fight. With engaging original animation, archival industry footage beginning in the 1930s, and first-person accounts of the unfolding emergency, the film distills a complex problem that is increasingly affecting the planet’s and its residents’ well-being.
THE STORY OF PLASTIC is presented by The Story of Stuff Project, a nonprofit dedicated to changing the way that we make, use, and throw away Stuff so that it is more sustainable, healthy, and fair.
