Message in a Plastic Bottle - First Look
"Message in a Plastic Bottle," due to be released in spring of 2015, documents the improbable voyage of the Hyas yiem, a kayak built out of discarded plastic bottles. From Olympia to Bellingham, 150 miles through the waters of Puget Sound, this film will explore the effects of plastic in the marine environment while capturing the beauty and wonder of Washington's inland coast.
A standup paddleboard made from discarded plastic bottles - and a challenge to rethink single-use plastics. This short film was produced by Robert Entenman and a team of students from UW-Tacoma.
