Australian journalist Craig Leeson’s Groundbreaking Documentary: A Plastic Ocean

Why We Recommend it

“A Plastic Ocean”, an award-winning feature-length adventure documentary that brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle, will be screened free of admission.


Described as “one of the most important films of our time” by Sir David Attenborough, A Plastic Ocean (2016) is a powerful look at the fragile state of our oceans. It was filmed in twenty locations–including Hong Kong–over the course of four years.

The idea for this documentary was first sparked when Australian journalist Craig Leeson discovered the ocean brimming with plastic waste while searching for the blue whale. In A Plastic Ocean, Craig teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers to uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect.

The event is organised by Outward Bound Hong Kong, a non-profit organisation created to help people discover and develop their potential to care for themselves, others and the world around them.

The documentary will be screened from 10:30am – 12:15pm.


When: 5 Nov 2017 - 5 Nov 2017 Where: Hong Kong Academy Theatre – 33 Wai Man Road, Sai Kung – New Territories
