Friday Night Flicks @ Bay Street: Straws & 60 MiNueTs Toxic

Sponsored by:

February 1
at 8:00pm

 

With colorful straw history animation narrated by Oscar winner Tim Robbins, STRAWS leaves audiences with a clear understanding of the problems caused by plastic pollution and empowers individuals to be part of the solution. It’s estimated every day 500 million plastic straws are used once and tossed in the U.S. alone. Ocean Conservancy ranks straws as the #5 most found litter item on beaches. They’re non-recyclable, so they wind up in landfills, litter streets, and add to the estimated 8.5 million metric tons of plastic debris in oceans annually. Together with Bay Street Theater, Group for the East End is screening this film as part of their efforts to raise awareness about the negative effects of single-use plastic on eastern Long Island’s land, water, and wildlife.

Presented in collaboration with Group for the East End


 

60 MiNueTs Toxic is a series of videos on environmental health issues. They cover a range of topics, from what toxic chemicals are doing to children’s health and development to the politics of science. The film features puppets created by Sag Harbor’s own Liz Joyce, modeled after legendary journalists from CBS News’ 60 Minutes.
These shorts and the talkbacks that follow will be insightful for all.
Presented in collaboration with Public Interest Media Group

 
These screenings will be followed by a talkback with Bob DeLuca (President of Group for the East End) & Susan Lamontagne (President of Public Interest Media Group).
