    • Synopsis
    • Award winning filmmaker Giacomo Mantovani talks about a massive issue worldwide that the majority of the people is not considering: the huge amount of plastic waste in the environment. The problem is that plastic is made to last, and indeed it last for a very long time. Plastic breaks in many tiny pieces, but it never disappear completely from the water. All of this little pieces keep breaking until they become so small that is no more possible to see them, but they are still there, contaminating the water.

      Fishes, sea creatures and seabirds, they all eat this toxic materials, and eventually people eat them. So this is not safe for the creatures, this is not safe for us, this is not good for the environment, where plastic garbage increases the temperature of the seas and oceans, and this consequently have a strong impact to the global climate change. Life in the seas does still exist, but it’s in real danger because of the unmerciful fishing and because of the massive amount of pollution in the water. Fishes eat this stuff and it’s very sad, as they deserve a better life as our children do. The entire world deserve to be in a better condition, and because we are responsible for this, we are the only solution. We need to do something about it now, we can’t wait no more.

      We really owe this to ourselves, we owe it to the next generations, to all the living creatures of this world and to this wonderful planet.
