Plastic People documentary film crew visits Lake Huron's southeast shore

Residents living along Lake Huron's southeast shore, including citizens from Bayfield and area and students from the South Huron area, are among the people who were interviewed for a new documentary about plastic pollution.

The documentary Plastic People had its world première showing, in March of 2024, in Austin, Texas at the South by Southwest (SXSW) 2024 film festival.

There is a screening of the film taking place in St. Catharines, Ontario on Tuesday, Sunday, June 30, 2024 at 7 p.m.

Watch for details, coming soon, of a chance to see the film along Lake Huron's southeast shore.

The Plastic People documentary website writes that:

"Almost every bit of plastic ever made breaks down into microplastics. These microscopic particles drift in the air, float in all bodies of water, and mix into the soil, becoming a permanent part of the environment. Now, leading scientists are finding these particles in our bodies: organs, blood, brain tissue, and even the placentas of new mothers. What is the impact of these invisible invaders on our health? And can anything be done about it?"

Owen Gleiberman, of Variety, writes that Plastic People is " ... one of those essential state-of-our-world documentaries.”
