It is absolutely wonderful to learn there are some amazing people like your father who take upon this task of keeping our environment clean as their personal responsibility. I would absolutely go to the cinema to watch this documentary! Thank you for sharing it too, so we can all be inspired and do our part.

This is a documentry film that narrats the impact and the problems that plastic wastes couses all around the world.
If we starts from our houses by heart, we can get red off that steggering amount of plastics.

I’m not interested in documentary but after reading this review of the film ‘ A Plastic Ocean’, I really want to see the film. I think the film will give me more information about the impact of plastic waste and makes me take more actions on environment protection.

I don't understand. I am not finding any reviews of 'A Plastic Ocean' on this site. Is there any specific review which I need to read? "There are a number of reviews of this film.

Hi anik.ah,

The review is on the page above, in the 'Reading text' tab, just after 'Preparation' and before 'Task 1'. Can you not see it?

I haven't seen too many documentaries but this one got my attention.
Air and soil pollution are worrying topics that many people don't care about.
If it is still the same problem, the world will become a bad place to live in about 100 years because of Global Warming (which is a result of the aforementioned problems).

I recommend you to watch a documentary film about Chernobyl. it has name "Battle of Chernobyl". This film is about events, that took place on Chernobyl nuclear power plant in 1986. You can discover a lot of interesting facts about this disaster, that were hidden by government of Soviet Union, and understand the threat of nuclear power plants.
