PLASTIC FREE ISLAND (Island Sans Plastic) examines the mobilization of an entire island to address its plastic pollution problem.
5 years in the making, this film documents the synergy of two artist-directed networks, Drifters Project and Plastic Pollution Coalition in the development of a template of social and artistic engagement of the island of Kefalonia, Greece. With an international team of 30 students and hundreds of citizens of the island, beaches are cleaned, plastic is typed and sorted and artwork is created. As a model for reinventing at-risk island communities, Plastic Free Island works to create a template for a sustainable future, one island at a time.
Produced and Directed by Pam Longobardi (Drifters Project) and Diana Cohen (Plastic Pollution Coalition)
