Life and Death

As the world continues to consume single-use plastic at alarming rates, this atmospheric film imagines a world where plastic replaces water – our singular life force – and other key aspects of natural life. An elegiac dystopia set in the Caribbean, the film explores various scenarios, transforming the idyllic into the undesirable. It is a Caribbean call to action, and a message to all of us who share the planet.
