A Plastic Ocean Behind the Scenes Photography

Join us for an evening of conversation with film maker and executive producer Jo Ruxton of critically acclaimed film A Plastic Ocean (available on Netflix) and investigative journalist Oliver Steeds. Jo will be discussing the motivation and process of making the film and displaying her behind-the-scenes

photographs from the project.

Formerly a Blue Planet producer, Jo wanted to raise awareness and show the true extent to which plastic has polluted the world’s seas. Accompanied by scientists, conservationists and engineers, Jo set out to some of the most remote parts of the world to document the true extent of plastic pollution and its consequences on ecosystems and human health.

We discuss how both visually stunning and shocking images can be used in environmental activism, and the best tactics to bring about change.

Jo Ruxton worked for the WWF in Asia for 7 years, before joining the BBC Natural History Unit as a Producer, where she was a part of the celebrated Blue Planet Team. Much of her life has been spent filming underwater. She is a co-founder of Plastic Oceans Foundation, and a Producer of and Ambassador for the film A Plastic Ocean
