Filtering A Plastic Ocean profiles ocean activist Marc Ward and his simple invention that removes toxic microplastics from the beach, and therefore the ocean. The film explores the impact these tiny plastics have on marine wildlife and human health, and shows how this groundbreaking technique is making beaches safe for people around the world. Produced and directed by Rory Banyard at North Shore Productions, Inc., in Portland, Oregon. Filtering A Plastic Ocean premiered at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival in January 2016.
