Plastic Fantastic

Director: Isa Willinger

Documentary feature, 2023

January 2024

Synopsis

“The global plastic crisis is dismantled and reassembled in a well-researched, cinematic film that not only points to the problems, but also to possible solutions. Probably the most important climate film of the year, with an attentive eye on greenwashing and climate racism.” (CPH:DOX 2023)
