Filmaker Q & A: Angela Sun: Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch
The Battle of Midway Island in 1942 marked the turn of the tide in the Pacific War. Now, that island, home to thousands of Laysan Albatross, is at the center of a war against discarded plastic. Plastic Paradise is an exploration into the history of plastic: where it comes from, what it is used for, where it ends up. We talked with filmmaker Angela Sun about her experience creating Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which screens on Saturday, March 9, at 10:00 am, at the 2013 San Francisco International Ocean Film Festival.
