“Plastic Disaster” is an award-winning documentary produced by Frarida Alami, Sal Vasquez, Jenine Carre, three senior digital media arts students at Cal State Dominguez Hills who wanted to show how bad plastic is for marine life.
The documentary was filmed in San Diego, Huntington Beach, Los Angeles, Long Beach and at the Marine Mammal Care Center of Los Angles in San Pedro.
“Plastic Disaster” was filmed with the guidance of faculty members and by using materials and resources provided by CSUDH.
The documentary discussed the disastrous effects of plastic waste on marine life and featured interviews with experts from Heal the Bay, Surfrider Foundation, the Mammal Care Center and the Algalita Marine Research Foundation.
The documentary shows the negative effects plastic has on our marine life with scenes that display dead sea birds with bodies full of plastic pieces and sea lions tangled in plastic.
“Plastic Disaster” won several awards after its release and was selected as a semi-finalist for the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival Award and Cinefest.
The documentary received top honors during the Rosarito International Film Festival in October and was officially selected to attend the Women’s Only Entertainment Film Festival.
The most prestigious recognition that Plastic Disaster earned was the Hollywood International Independent Documentary Award (HIDA). The students are set to receive their award from HIDA on March 24 at the Awards Gala in L.A.
