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.

The article points out about the importance of the society awareness about sustainable actions, specially in the plastic use. The texts present a documentary that brings the experience of two people, one journalist and one environment activist, whose go in a journey searching marine life and plastic floating in the ocean. This subject is an emergent issue in modern times, and it has been taking the attention of many politics and organizations.

It's not a specific documentary I'd like to recommend. But, if you have some time, visit GOOGLE EARTH through the following link: ( https://earth.google.com/web/@61.05987082,-147.05927869,-0.1888294a,224… /data=CgQSAggBOgMKATA?authuser=0 )
There are several contents that call our attention to the need for urgent action. There are many irreversible damages that are consequences of human ignorance and now put our existence at risk.
