Experiencing Interruptions?

SpaceBaby on the Jurassic Coast

Stella, a space baby from a far away planet, receives a message in a plastic bottle asking for help! She travels all across the Universe to the Jurassic Coast on Earth to find out who sent it. There, she encounters all kinds of strange fantastical creatures and speaks to the local guardian face of each beach. Slowly she pieces together the disturbing problems of the coast. How rubbish and pollution is affecting these creatures’ lives – transforming them into mutants, bandits, fashion fiends, and even dragons!
Stella then realises there is only one course of action she can take to save the planet!

This is a fun environmental film to highlight the problems of rubbish and pollution on our beaches, using sci-fi, fantasy, some techno music, and a one year old.

All rubbish used in this film was collected along the Jurassic Coast, and later recycled.
