Plastic Planet

by Werner Boote Documentary Austria, Germania/Germany 2009 95'

Few materials have so thoroughly marked the character of the late 20th century as has plastic, which has invaded every nook and cranny of daily life. Plastic's environmental footprint is as large as it is pernicious, with potential health risks for humans and animals alike. Werner Boote guides on an exploration of the world of plastic, from its invention as a means to make life easier, cheaper and healthier, to the numerous problems and associated risks, such as the toxic additives used for making it and its long life cycle.
