We recently added Plastic Planet to the DBRL collection. Local MU professor Fred vom Saal, who has done biological research with plastic, is one of the many people interviewed in the film. The film also has original music by electronic musicians The Orb. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
It is the Age of Plastic. It’s cheap, practical, and everywhere. But is it dangerous? Viewers are taken on a journey around the globe, from the Moroccan Sahara to the middle of the Pacific Ocean, from a factory in China to the Alps to reveal the far-flung reaches of the plastic problem. Interviews with experts in biology, pharmacology, and genetics shed light on the perils of plastic to the environment and expose the truth of how plastic affects the body, and the health of future generations.
