FirstFridayFilms: Addicted to Plastic this Friday!

It has been a busy January for First Friday Films, and it is hard believe that Februrary is already here. However, with February comes our screening of the wonderful film Addicted of Plastic, which we will be showing at 6:30pm at American Memorial Park this Friday (February 4th).

The film shows the cycle of many different types of plastics we use everyday, the many threats they pose to our oceans and health, and the challenges with recycling plastic. It is “a wake up-call…a sort of eco-horror movie!” said Dr. M. Cervino of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. It also presents unique and bizarre solutions to reducing, reusing, and recycling this useful yet toxic material.

Members of the Marianas Islands Nature Alliance (MINA) will also be out of Friday to talk about their "No Need Bag" campaign kicking off here in Saipan this month.

Also, the Pacific Historic Parks Bookstore, located inside the visitor’s center, will be open until 8:30 p.m. All proceeds go to community education programs.

For planning purposes, the movie runs about 85 minutes long. As always, First Friday Films is free and open to the public. Limited seating is available; please arrive early to ensure entry.

We hope to see you Friday!
