“Microplastic Madness” Film – coming to Santa Rosa in Nov
Want to see a great film about some very enterprising young people?
Microplastic Madness is the story of 56 fifth graders from Brooklyn – living on the frontline of the climate crisis – whose actions on plastic pollution morph into extraordinary leadership and scalable victories.
With stop-motion animation, heartfelt kid commentary, and interviews of experts and renowned scientists who are engaged in the most cutting-edge research on the harmful effects of microplastics, this alarming, yet charming narrative, conveys an urgent message in user-friendly terms.
These fifth graders spent 2 years investigating plastic pollution. Taking on the roles of citizen scientists, community leaders, and advocates, these 10–11-year-olds collect local data, lead community outreach, and use their impressive data to inform policy, testifying and rallying at City Hall.
They take a deep dive into the root causes of plastic pollution, bridging the connection between plastic, climate change, and environmental justice before turning their focus back to school. There they take action to rid their cafeteria of all single-use plastic, driving forward city-wide action and a scalable, youth-led plastic-free movement.
The film has been accepted to 22 film festivals and received 5 awards.
