Earth Day screening & discussion of short film “This Mortal Plastik” by AMT faculty Jess Irish

Thursday, April 21 at 3:00 PM EST

Let’s celebrate Earth Day by taking a deep dive into a mysterious and mundane aspect of everyday life: plastics. AMT faculty Jess Irish will screen her award-winning documentary  short (21 min), followed by a discussion of why plastics are both magical and monstrous, and what kinds of change can really make a difference. 

This event will be recorded and shared with attendees afterward.
