JUNK: An Ocean Voyage & Rise of Activism to Fight Plastic Pollution
Dr. Marcus Eriksen, international plastic pollution expert, takes audiences of all ages on an adventure in his 27 minute film JUNK, based on the book he wrote detailing his 88 days at sea, adrift in the North Pacific Gyre on a raft made of plastic bottles. JUNK RAFT is listed on Forbes top 10 Best Environment, Climate Science and Conservation Books of 2017. As James Cameron, filmmaker and deep-ocean explorer says, JUNK combines “adventure far from shore, the spirit of exploration, and the fight to save our oceans—all in a gripping narrative that is also a parable for our time.” Marcus is an engaging public speaker with a colorful background who delivers a compelling message about plastic pollution with a call to action that resonates with audiences of all interests and backgrounds. The JUNK voyage is considered a seminal moment in the ocean plastic pollution movement, led by Marcus Eriksen & Anna Cummins, and captured on film by Chris Jones.
