Director:
Line Hadsbjerg
Producers: Philipp Baier, Line Hadsbjerg

Description:

Out of Plastic is a documentary film that sets out to explore the obscure depths of plastics in the Mediterranean. The film is set in the Balearic Islands, and offers viewers a moment to reflect on the profound presence of plastic in our lives and in our natural environment. The film also offers sweeping landscapes and mystic ocean depths—the point-of-encounter between man and nature—and intends to demonstrate how our over consumption of single-use plastic has tipped the scales, to the detriment of nature, and ultimately ourselves. The film allows nature to speak for herself—through intimate, timeless images of landscape, marine life and panoramic vistas.
