Microplastic Madness: FREE school holiday screening
Join us 1-3pm for a small group screening of Microplastic Madness, an inspiring documentary about kids tackling the plastic pollution crisis. This documentary is suitable for all ages and best suited to 7-14yo.
About the documentary -
Microplastic Madness is exclusively available via Australian Parents for Climate Action and tells the story of a group of 11-year-olds from Red Hook, 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 eleven year olds dive deep into the root causes of plastic pollution. Taking on the roles of citizen scientists and community advocates, they collect local data, lead community outreach, and use their own local data to inform policy by testifying and rallying at City Hall. Then they turned their focus back to school, taking action in their cafeteria to eliminate all single-use plastic!
