We live in the Age of Plastic. It's cheap, it's practical, and it's everywhere - from the highest mountains to the hottest deserts, from the North Pole to the South Pole. It's even part of us - inside our blood. Should we be worried? In Plastic Planet, director Werner Boote takes us on a journey around the globe - from the Moroccan Sahara to the middle of the Pacific Ocean, from a factory in China to the highest peaks of the Alps - to reveal the far-flung reach of plastic. Interviews with the world's foremost experts in biology, pharmacology, and genetics shed light on the perils of plastic to our environment and expose the truth of how plastic affects our bodies...and the health of future generations. WINNER! 2010 German Environment Media Award Illuminating and infuriating. Plastic Planet is so important that it is a must-see. - The Village Voice Every bit as unshakable as An Inconvenient Truth. - Time Out New York Fascinating and ultimately alarming. - The New York Times Intelligent, wide-ranging, and methodically researched. Plastic Planet is that rare call-to-action documentary that might rouse viewers to do something more than nod their heads in agreement. - Variety At once scary and engaging, Plastic Planet is the best kind of advocacy documentary. - Film Journal International A fair-minded, sobering but accessible call to action. - Wired Magazine
