Julieta en de schildpadden in de plastic soep
On World Cleanup Day, we’re showing three films about plastic soup. In Stik everyone eats plastic; in Tidy Town recycling plastic waste doesn’t go as planned, and in Julieta & de schildpadden in de plastic soep Julieta deals with the waste around Curaçao.
Julieta en de schildpadden in de plastic soep (Mirjam Marks, NL 2020, 15')
Documentary about 14-year-old Julieta who is getting to grips with the large quantities of waste on the seabed off Curaçao. Julieta would rather be underwater than on the surface. The more time Julieta spends underwater, the more she is confronted by the huge amounts of waste on the seabed, and this makes Julieta really angry. Together with other volunteers on Curaçao, Julieta saves turtles that are in danger. Director Mirjam Marks will introduce the film.
Tidy Town (Dana Alink, NL/FR/PE/US 2020, 7')
The beaches of Tidy Town are polluted by bottles produced by the corporation headed by Linnaeus Wolf. Raccoon Joy comes up with the idea of asking him to help recycle all this plastic. The locals enthusiastically collect the waste to take it back to the factory. But the recycling process doesn’t turn out as Joy hoped. A 2D animation by artist Dana Alink and Thirza van der Zee.
Stik (Niek Roozen, NL 2020, 12')
Bloem’s grandpa Pieter combs the beaches looking for plastic. Not to dispose of it, but to eat it – he’s a plastictarian, like the rest of the world. He loves plastic soup and crunchy polypropylene. During a day out, this waste-turned-foodstuff turns out to be a deadly threat not only to the seagulls, but also to grandpa Pieter.
