In this playful look at a serious subject, Werner Boote exhaustively examines the far-reaching effects of plastics on the environment. Can we curb our love for this ubiquitous material, or do we still need it despite the problems it causes?
Screening followed by a panel discussion with: Elisabeth Royte, author of "Garbage Land and Bottlemania: How Water Went on Sale and Why We Bought It" and Michael Rieser, Staten Island Recycling Outreach Coordinator, Office of Recycling Outreach and Education Council on the Environment of New York City.
The evening concludes with a reception in the Furman Galery, adjacent to the Walter Reade Theater's lobby.
