Fit to Survive?
What on earth will be fit to survive the Oceanic trash vortexes we are creating?
‘Survival of the fittest’ takes on a new air of menace and dystopia in relation to the environments we are creating for species to adapt to. This short film reflects on the hundreds of tons of rubbish, primarily plastics, covering huge parts of the northern Pacific Ocean, known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and asks what species will be fit to survive in this environment.
Fit to Survive? was commissioned to celebrate the life and work of Charles Darwin as part of the Darwin bicentennial celebrations, screened at the National History Museum as part of Darwin 200, opened by David Attenborough and also aired on Channel 4. It is part of the British Film Institute Archives. Produced and managed by Artsadmin.
