The LA premiere of A Plastic Ocean, on January 17, proved to be a resounding success. We had a great turnout at the Laemmle Ahrya Fine Arts Theater, in Beverly Hills, which included a reception before the screening and an invigorating panel discussion that included:
- Ed Begley Jr., actor and activist
- Katie Allen, Algalita Marine Research
- Anna Cummins, 5 Gyres
- Jordan Howard, environmental activist and 2015 Women in Green Youth Trailblazer
- Christie Keith, GAIA
- Terrance Smith, student, Pullum Community Arts Center
The screening was hosted by the Plastic Pollution Coalition, and those joining the Plastic Oceans Foundation as sponsors included 5 Gyres, Algalita, Blue Mind (Wallace J Nichols), Lonely Whale Foundation, Heal The Bay, Environmental Media Awards, Team Marine, Fernando Pullum Community Arts Center, US Green Building Council-Los Angeles Chapter, and The Bay Foundation.
We thank all those that came out to support this event, including legendary guitarist and member of U2, Dave Evans, better known as The Edge!
