PLASTIC FREE ISLAND (Island Sans Plastic) examines the mobilization of an entire island in Greece to address its plastic pollution problem. 5 years in the making, this film documents the synergy of two artist-directed networks, Drifters Project and Plastic Pollution Coalition in the development of a template of social and artistic engagement of the island of Kefalonia, Greece. With an international team of 30+ students and hundreds of citizens of the island, beaches are cleaned, plastic is typed and sorted and artwork is created. As a model for reinventing at-risk island communities, Plastic Free Island works to create a template for a sustainable future, one island at a time.
