We have been fortunate enough here at LMV to have screened Plastic Shores at numerous high-profile organisations including the United Nations, the OECD, and the European Economic and Social Committee. We can now confirm that we can add Capitol Hill in Washington DC to this list. Hosted by Congressman Sam Farr (pictured above), who appears in the film, the event, in the House of Congress’ Visitor Centre on the 18th July, will also include Congressman Don Young; Nancy Wallace, the director of NOAA’s Marine Debris Program; Nicholas Mallos, a conservation biologist with the Ocean Conservancy; and Judith Kildow, the director of the National Ocean Economics Program and the Center for the Blue Economy. We are very privileged to be able to screen the film at such a prestigious place and think that it is a sign that the problems with marine debris are becoming more main stream. Sam Farr was one of the key-note speakers at the 5th International Marine Debris Conference in Hawaii, which we filmed last year. He has been working tirelessly for much of his political career to secure the protection of our world’s oceans.
