Out of Plastic documentary

Out of Plastic is a documentary that explores the obscure depths of plastics in the Mediterranean Sea. The film is set in the Balearic Islands, and offers a moment to reflect on the profound presence of plastic in our lives and in our environment. The film also offers sweeping landscapes and mystic ocean depths – the point-of-encounter between man and nature – and intends to demonstrate how our over consumption of single-use plastic has tipped the scales, to the detriment of nature, and ultimately ourselves.

Director: Line Hadsbjerg

Eating Up Easter

Chile/USA | 2018 | 76 mins

Native Rapanui (Easter Island) filmmaker Sergio Mata’u Rapu narrates to his son the modern dilemma of their people who risk losing everything to the globalizing effects of tourism.

The film follows four islanders, descendants of the ancient Moia statue builders of Easter Island, who are working to tackle the consequences of their rapidly developing home. Mama Piru leads recycling efforts to reduce trash, Mahani and Enrique use music to reunite their divided community, and Sergio tries to understand the motivations of his father who embraces the advantages of building new businesses. These stories intertwine to reveal the complexities of development and the contradictions within us all as we are faced with hard choices about our planet’s future.
