Belfast Refuse, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle invites the community to learn about plastic pollution via “Smog of the Sea” (2017, USA). The documentary, featuring stunning cinematography, will be shown Tuesday, April 3, at 6:30 p.m. at Troy Howard Middle School, 173 Lincolnville Ave./Route 52.

“Smog of the Sea” chronicles a one-week journey through the remote waters of the Sargasso Sea with marine scientist Marcus Eriksen; renowned surfers Keith and Dan Malloy; musician Jack Johnson; spearfisherman Kimi Werner; and bodysurfer Mark Cunningham. Their mission: evaluate the presence of plastics in the world’s oceans.

The film will be followed by an informational panel discussion with Matt Prindiville, executive director of UPSTREAM and featured in the film; and Todd Martin, outreach coordinator of Natural Resources Council of Maine; and student activists, who will describe their work at the Capt. Albert Stevens School and THMS.

The evening is sponsored by B-RRR of Troy Howard middle and CASS elementary schools; Natural Resources Council of Maine; UPSTREAM; and Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition.
