Changing Tides: Short film shows the impact of ocean garbage patch on Hawaii

CHANGING TIDES is a short film about ocean waste and what it means for residents of Hawai’i and other Pacific islands and how they’ve been impacted.

Hawai’i is the most remote land mass on Earth, the land mass closest to the North Pacific Gyre, and the first land mass to start seeing the effects of the world’s ocean debris.

The 15-minute movie, made by filmmaker Danny Miller, takes an in-depth look at ocean garbage in the Pacific through the eyes of Hawaiian kapuna and professional watermen, scientist and volunteers.

CHANGING TIDES dispels the myths and demonstrates the real dangers of the Northern Pacific Garbage Patch, which is nearly twice the size of Texas and looming off Hawaii’s shores.
