Into the Gyre is a 44-minute film documenting a groundbreaking expedition to study the location, extent and effect of plastic pollution in the North Atlantic Gyre. Thirty-three volunteer researchers, scientists and sailors participated in this five-week long journey to the Sargasso Sea, east of Bermuda. Sailing on a 135-foot tall ship operated by the Sea Education Association, the film closely follows four of the researchers as they collect, count, and archive the plastic they encounter. Along the way, the film examines the history of plastics, the adverse effects it is causing in the ocean, and possible solutions to this problem.
Over the last five years, ocean gyres have been hot environmental news stories, primarily focused on the Pacific Ocean gyre, also know as the 'Great Pacific Garbage Patch.' Into the Gyre follows one of the first research expeditions to study the North Atlantic gyre. The primary source of Atlantic plastic pollution is the eastern United States, making this story of particular importance to American audiences. The expedition -- and the film -- provides the first accurate depiction of the science, collection and study of plastic pollution in the open ocean.
As a follow up to the Sargasso Sea expedition, the crew of the sailing research vessel Robert C. Seamans is currently exploring the ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’ to continue research in the area and to measure the impact of the floating debris washed to sea by the March 2011 tsunami in Japan.
