8- 9.30 FILM (80 min, 12A recommended)

Rubber Jellyfish is a feature-length documentary film by Australian wildlife conservationist and mum-to-be Carly Wilson. In the film Carly goes on a mission to uncover the truth surrounding sea-turtles and their propensity for dining on plastic waste.

As she travels around Australia seeking to understand the science and various points of view, Carly discovers a range of issues, from the heartbreaking impact on sea turtles to the potentially deadly effect of helium on children. Her journey takes her from littered beaches to the capital, as she speaks to activists, businesses, and politicians to find out why the balloon problem is being ignored and if something can be done.

9.30 – 10 pm Q&A DISCUSSION

For those that want to delve deeper into the subject matter. The discussion is hosted by Ecotainment! and Don’t Inflate to Celebrate who are both Dorset based eco-campaigns. With over twenty years experience combined they were responsible for bringing this film to the UK for it’s European premiere in Wimborne on March 14th.
