About the Event: In conjunction with the world environment day 2022, the SEA circular project jointly with MeshMinds and Studio Birthplace organizing an event to introduce the short film – PLASTIK, which is developed by MeshMinds and produced by Studio Birthplace.
We are cordially inviting audiences to view the plastic pollution crisis through the eyes and imagination of a child in South-East Asia, a major hotspot for plastic pollution. It is the first short film made in Asia for an Asian audience, using creative storytelling and live action drama to raise awareness and catalyse action to end plastic pollution in the region. The film follows a child experiencing hyper-realistic glimpses into a plastic-polluted future through the lens of a plastic bottle ‘telescope’.
Watch how they take individual action to influence their family to say no to single-use plastic.
Objective of the event: The event is designed to premiere the film globally on Facebook, and will hold a panel discussion, in conjunction with the premiere of the film and leading up to World Environment Day 2022, aims to highlight, particularly in a South-East Asian context, the social implications of plastic pollution and how to mitigate them, and ways to ignite behavioural change in the region, to say no to single-use plastic. The panel also hopes to discuss ways in which sustainability advocates, governments and laymen can do their part to increase empathy for the crisis.
