Screening of : The Smog of the Sea

Thursday, July 6, 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM

Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists’ Hall
1924 Cedar (@Bonita), Berkeley http://www.bfuu.org

Please join us for a film screening of Smog of the Sea, followed by a discussion with San Francisco’s Senior Commercial Zero Waste Coordinator, Jack Macy, who will share info about local efforts to reduce single use plastics. Smog of the Sea follows the crew of @5Gyres SEA change research expedition, as they discover that the great ocean garbage patch is actually a “fog” of microplastics – trillions of barely visible shards – permeating the world’s oceans. The crew includes renowned surfers Keith & Dan Malloy, musician Jack Johnson, spearfisher woman Kimi Werner, and bodysurfer Mark Cunningham. Using sparkling underwater cinematography and live-action footage of the crew’s research, Smog of the Sea makes an artful call to action for rethinking single-use plastic.
You are invited to meet and greet at 6:30. Please bring healthy snacks to share if you can. The film will begin at 7:00 and discussion will follow. Co-Sponsors: Transition Berkeley, The Ecology Center and BFUUs Social Justice Committee. This event is part of The Ecology Center series for Plastic-Free July: http://ecologycenter.org/plastic-free-july/
