Into The Gyre
Into the Gyre is a 44-minute documentary about a groundbreaking expedition to study the location, extent and effect of plastic pollution in the North Atlantic Gyre. Thirty-four volunteer researchers, scientists and sailors participated in this five-week expedition to the Sargasso Sea, east of Bermuda.
"Into the Gyre is a much-needed addition and most welcomed for its scientific perspective instead of sensationalism."
