Scientists as Heroes: Researchers Advocating for the Earth

All films will be shown at Epworth United Methodist Church, 6450 Allisonville Road, at 7:30 p.m. on the second Friday of each month. Co-sponsors of the film series are Cross and Crown Lutheran Church, Epworth United Methodist Church, First Friends Meeting and the Sierra Club's Hoosier Chapter.
 

Nov. 14: Plastic Paradise

Thousands of miles away from civilization, Midway Atoll is in one of the most remote places on earth. And yet it’s become ground zero for The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, syphoning plastics from three distant continents. In this independent documentary film, journalist/filmmaker Angela Sun travels on a personal journey of discovery to uncover this mysterious phenomenon.
 
Along the way she meets scientists, researchers, influencers, and volunteers who shed light on the effects of our rabid plastic consumption and learns the problem is more insidious than we could have ever imagined. (http://plasticparadisemovie.com)
