Q&A after the film
Executive Producer Stiv Wilson is a plastic pollution expert and an organizing member of the #breakfreefromplastic movement.

On a special Earth Day viewing, we will hold a reception followed by the film and a panel discussion. Complimentary snacks, water, beer and wine (none of which will be served in plastic cups or bottles) will be available.


THE STORY OF PLASTIC is a searing expose, uncovering the ugly truth behind plastic pollution and the false solution of plastic recycling. Different from every other plastic documentary you’ve seen, THE STORY OF PLASTIC presents a cohesive timeline of how we got to our current global plastic pollution crisis and how the oil and gas industry has successfully manipulated the narrative around it. This film introduces audiences to the heroes and the villains behind one of the world's most pressing environmental issues, from the extraction of fossil fuels to plastic disposal and the global resistance fighting back.

Revealing the urgent information global audiences need to know immediately, through life-changing footage shot all over the world, THE STORY OF PLASTIC will not only change viewers' lives but will fuel a worldwide movement.
