LIVE DEEPLY, TREAD LIGHTLY
Against the Current
A story of physical endurance and mental fortitude…
Plastic Oceans International is pleased to announce the world premiere of Against the Current, a feature-length documentary, narrated by actor Matthew Modine, that chronicles the story of South Africa’s Sarah Ferguson becoming the first person ever to swim around Easter Island nonstop.
Without being able to touch a boat or another person, Sarah’s daunting 40-mile swim was estimated to take up to 32 hours to complete, through strong currents, large waves, powerful winds and other hurdles along the way. It’s a challenge she and a global team took on in March of 2018 as part of Plastic Oceans’ Swim Against Plastic campaign, which was created to raise awareness about the issue of plastic pollution and the need to protect our marine environments.
We are the official ambassador for Plastic Oceans in South Africa, and have exclusive rights to screen the documentaries!
