About the Movie

Join us for a free screening of Microplastic Madness, a documentary from Cafeteria Culture. Microplastic Madness is the story of 56 fifth graders from P.S.15 in Red Hook, Brooklyn – living on the frontline of the climate crisis – whose action on plastic pollution morphs into extraordinary leadership and scalable victories. With stop-motion animation, expert interviews, and heartfelt kid commentary, their inspiring narrative conveys an urgent, accessible message of informed action and hope. The film has been accepted to 14 film festivals, received 2 awards, and screened in 5 countries.
