Smog of the Sea:

SJAM Movie Night

Monday, November 19


Family Life Center

The Smog of the Sea chronicles a one-week journey through the remote waters of the Sargasso Sea. Marine scientist Marcus Eriksen invited onboard an unusual crew to help him study the sea.


As the crew sieves the water and sorts through their haul, a disturbing reality sets in: a fog of microplastics permeates the world’s oceans, trillions of nearly invisible plastic shards making their way up the marine food chain. You can clean up a garbage patch, but how do you stop a fog?


The Smog of the Sea provides a new perspective on the once pristine oceans, and makes an artful call to action for rethinking the scourge of the sea — single-use plastic.


Come join us for the movie and discussion about what steps we can take to make a difference,
and help curb the scourge of plastics on this planet.
