Aldabra Clean-Up Project documentary to be screened for free at Deepam Cinema |19 November 2019
The 24-minute documentary goes behind the scenes of the five-week expedition which took place from February 22 to March 29, 2019 and removed over 25 metric tonnes of plastic pollution from the remote Unesco World Heritage site Aldabra Atoll.
‘Island under Siege’ reveals the scale of the global issue of plastic pollution as well as the realities of living and working on a remote island.
The film was produced by Seychelles Islands Foundation and Queen’s College of the University of Oxford to educate the public about plastic consumption and the impact it has on cherished natural sites such as Aldabra.
A free screening of the documentary is also being organised at Deepam Cinema on Praslin and a shorter version of the documentary has been entered into the International Ocean Film Festival.
