Aqua Seafoam Shame to be screened at Burning Man 2013



From the critically acclaimed director of the Burning Man mini-doc "15 Minutes of Flame."  This project speaks to the Leave No Trace ethos.


This multi-nominated environmental documentary by 8 year Burner Veteran is available to view for FREE online as well as at a prestigious film festival near you.


Aqua Seafoam Shame is a critically acclaimed documentary with multiple nominations which explores the horrific diagnosis that 25% of our planet's surface is now garbage landfill, due to the pacific garbage patch and plastics. In 20 years our world could end up with no coral reefs - which means our oceans will revert back to the primordial sludge it was before creatures walked on land. What, if anything, can be done to backpedal the Earth from this cataclysmic trajectory?

Scary stats: 

  • 90% of the big fish in the sea and 20% of our coral reefs have gone extinct
  • 12% of our land is protected but less than 1% of our oceans are
  • 20 Billion pounds of plastic end up in the seas each year
  • 46,000 pieces of plastic are in every square mile of ocean 

One critic hails it as possibly the most important documentary ever made.
