Reversing the plastic tide

The film exposes the problem of marine debris in the Argentinean Sea. It shows how a deficient management of fishing waste and the lack of regulation puts the southern right whale and a highly relevant marine ecosystem at risk.
A sharp piece that raises the voice of a group of scientists, environmentalists, fishermen, recyclers and officials who working together try to prevent a greater environmental disaster. Urging the different sectors involved to unite and act before it is too late.

Director Statement

I am convinced that acting and speaking out against the inaction of the problem of plastic marine debris in our oceans is part of the solution, especially because there are many of us who are willing to shout louder and louder!
