Description

INVISIBLE OCEAN: PLANKTON AND PLASTIC, directed by Emily V. Driscoll, is an award-winning short documentary that follows NYC sci-artist Mara G. Haseltine as she creates a sculpture to reveal a microscopic threat beneath the surface of the ocean. During a Tara Oceans expedition to study the health of the oceans, Haseltine finds an unsettling presence in samples of plankton she collected. The discovery inspires her to create a sculpture that shows that the microscopic ocean world affects all life on Earth. The film features Mara G. Haseltine, Christian Sardet (The Plankton Chronicles, TARA Oceans) and Mark Anthony Browne (Ecologist NCEAS).

Where the Grassroots Grow written by Rita Hosking
Where the Grassroots Grow is dedicated to Beth Brown Boettner, who started the Austin, Texas recycling program and was a cherished community activist. When her supporters encouraged her to run for office, Beth refused, and noted "I want to be the old lady in tennis shoes who gets things done." Because she died in her mid 40's, Beth didn't become an old lady, but she did leave an empowering legacy behind her.
