Do the preparation task first. Then read the text and do the exercises.
A Plastic Ocean
A Plastic Ocean is a film to make you think. Think, and then act. We need to take action on our dependence on plastic. We've been producing plastic in huge quantities since the 1940s. Drink bottles, shopping bags, toiletries and even clothes are made with plastic. 1) _____. What happens to all the rest? This is the question the film A Plastic Ocean answers. It is a documentary that looks at the impact that plastic waste has on the environment. Spoiler alert: the impact is devastating.
The film begins as a journey to film the largest animal on the planet, the blue whale. But during the journey the filmmakers (journalist Craig Leeson and environmental activist Tanya Streeter) make the shocking discovery of a huge, thick layer of plastic floating in the middle of the Indian Ocean. 2) _____. In total, they visited 20 locations around the world during the four years it took them to make the film. The documentary premiered in 2016, and is now on streaming services such as Netflix.
It's very clear that a lot of research went into the film. There are beautiful shots of the seas and marine life. 3) _____. We see how marine species are being killed by all the plastic we are dumping in the ocean. The message about our use of plastic is painfully obvious.
4) _____. In the second half, the filmmakers look at what we can do to reverse the tide of plastic flowing around the world. They present short-term and long-term solutions. These include avoiding plastic containers and 'single-use' plastic products as much as possible. Reuse your plastic bags and recycle as much as you can. The filmmakers also stress the need for governments to work more on recycling programmes, and look at how technology is developing that can convert plastic into fuel.
We make a staggering amount of plastic. In terms of plastic bags alone, we use five hundred billion worldwide annually. Over 300 million tons of plastic are produced every year, and at least 8 million of those are dumped into the oceans. 5) _____. Once you've seen A Plastic Ocean, you'll realise the time is now and we all have a role to play.
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.
I'm not a big fan of documentaries. But I'll try to watch more of documentaries like this one.
Interesting topic yet interesting website thanks a lot !
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://firstname.lastname@example.org,-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.
There are a lot of documentaries related to sustainability, the environment, the circle economy, and the blue planet. The last one was related to a series about decoding Billy Gates's brain which mentions two important innovation processes that the whole of humankind must consider implementing in some way of energy production free of emissions and treating our excrement to reduce water waste.
The point is if a businessman is looking for a way to solve a very important problem directly related to our environment why everyone does think about how to do their best to reduce, reuse and recycle to transform our economy in a perfect circle for the best of our planet.
Such a vital subject to know about, thank you!
I don’t remember a lot of documentaries to recommend, but I would recommend the documentary called “Our Planet” streamed by Netflix because it’s a point of view very specific of each enviroment In the Earth and the differents creatures whom inhabits them.
Thanks for the lesson.
I am not a fan of documentary films but since now I decide to watch more this kind of films. I think they are really impressive and everyone can find a subject that can be interesting to watch base on their interests. they give a lot of knowledge and information about a specific area that can be very useful. on the other hand I can improve my on topic vocabulary by watching documentary. I promise as soon as I download and watch my first film I will come and write about it.
