Plasticskrald fra havet viser os hvem vi er, når frivillige strand-rensere sorterer deres farvestrålende fund i en varm film om et globalt problem.

Havet er vor blå planets store, ukendte land. Men alt for længe er verdenshavene også blevet brugt som skraldespand. I England, Japan og Holland møder vi fire frivillige, der renser strandene for plasticskrald, der hvor de bor. Det sker at en container ryger overbord fra et skib, og så dukker der plasticdinosaurer og rumskibe op langs kysten. Gode folk samler hvad de finder, og sorterer deres farvestrålende fund. ‘En arkæologi over fremtiden,’ som én af dem siger, selvom det snarere er den uholdbare måde, vi lever på netop nu, der her bliver forstørret og undersøgt med humor og varme.

Plastic waste from the sea shows us who we are, as volunteer beach cleaners sort their colourful findings in a warm film about a global crisis.

The sea is our blue planet’s great uncharted territory, but for far too long, the world’s oceans have also been used as a rubbish dump. In England, Japan and the Netherlands, we meet four volunteers who clean plastic waste from the beaches where they live. A container is accidentally thrown overboard from a ship, and soon the coast is dotted with plastic dinosaurs and little space ships. The good people pick up what they can and organise their colourful finds. ‘An archaeology of the future,’ as one of them says, even though it is the unsustainable way we live in right now that is magnified and examined here with warmth and humour.
