The Story of Stuff QC Environmental Film Series continues with the 2021 Emmy Award Winning Documentary "The Story of Plastic." On September 29th, this incredible film wasawarded a News and Documentary Emmy in the category of Outstanding Writing. Deia Schlosberg, director of the film – which unpacks the full extent of the global plastic pollution crisis – accepted the award on behalf of the crew involved in its production.
From the Story of Stuff website: "Our first feature-length documentary, The Story of Plastic is a searing expose revealing the ugly truth behind plastic pollution and the false solution of plastic recycling. Different from every other plastic documentary you’ve seen, The Story of Plastic presents a cohesive timeline of how we got to our current global plastic pollution crisis and how the oil and gas industry has successfully manipulated the narrative around it. From the extraction of fossil fuels and plastic disposal to the global resistance fighting back, The Story of Plastic is a life-changing film depicting one of the world’s most pressing environmental issues."
Admission at the Figge is $5. Tickets may be purchased at riveraction.org or before the movie. The Figge requires masks be worn, and seating will be limited.
The host and talk back speaker for this showing is Kathy Morris, Executive Director Waste Commission of Scott County/iLivehere Quad Cities.
