Film Maker – Jamie Lepre Director / Paul Hellier Producer
Film Description –
The top 5 biggest plastic polluting nations on the planet are in South East Asia. With this in mind, film maker Jamie Lepre and environmental scientist Paul Hellier embarked on an epic 4 week bicycle ride across Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. The result is an insightful and visually stunning documentary which not only highlights the tragic scale of this environmental catastrophe but celebrates this unique part of the globe and promotes the inspiring efforts of everyday locals who battle bureaucracy, apathy and indifference to educate others and push back against a burgeoning plastic tide.
