THE STORY OF PLASTIC Documentary screening + panel discussion

November 17, 2023 @ 17:00 - 20:00 CET

THE STORY OF PLASTIC is a searing exposé 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 exacerbating climate change. From the extraction of fossil fuels and plastic disposal to the global resistance fighting back, The Story of Plastic is a life-changing, Emmy-winning film depicting one of the world’s most pressing environmental issues. 

The film is directed by Deia Schlosberg and features heroes from the Break Free From Plastic movement who are rising up against big plastic around the world.

Every participant has the opportunity to bring up plastic-related issues during the panel discussion. Meet Our Panelists:
Prof. Emmanuel Sinagra: Lecturer in Polymer Chemistry, University of Malta
Prof. Marie Briguglio: Senior Lecturer, University of Malta, Department of Economics
Dr. Luca Nguyen, Research Officer, Islands and Small States Institute
Andrew Schembri: Co-Founder and Chairman of ‘Żibel Malta’
Moderator: Dr. Suzanne Maas, Climate Campaign Coordinator in Friends of the Earth Malta

Join us for a documentary screening and panel discussion of plastics and its impacts on our lives, climate change and human rights on Friday 17th November between 5:00 pm and 8:00pm at the KSU Common Room at the University of Malta. The community screening is open for everyone, registration is required (below). Drinks and light refreshments will be served for a donation, do not forget your reusable cup!

This event is organised by Friends of the Earth Malta, Kunsill Studenti Universitarji (KSU), the Science Students’ Society (S-Cubed), the Earth Systems Association (ESA) and with support of the Aġenzija Żgħażagħ INVEST Operational Grant 2023-2025.
