MÉDITERRANÉE, UNE SOUPE DE PLASTIQUE
32 minutes, 2011
Director : Sophie LE GALL (France);
Production : Ligne de Mire Production (France)
Could pollution from plastic contaminate the food chain and therefore arrive on our plates? The situation in the Mediterranean is particularly worrying since it is a closed sea, its waters only completely renewed once every hundred years. In addition there is a very strong human pressure on the Mediterranean. Scientists, citizens, fishermen are now blowing the whistle on this increasingly worrying pollution by plastic.
Having graduated from Sciences Po in Lyon and with an MA in political science from the Sorbonne, Sophie LE GALL went to the Centre de Formation des Journalistes. She began as a reporter for France 2 and France 3, then Point du Jour. Then she joined M6’s news magazine teams. She has made countless film reports, but also a dozen documentaries, the most recent being “Du poison dans l’eau du robinet” (90 minutes, 2010); “Mauvaises Ondes” (90 minutes, 2011); “L’école, une rentrée en question”; and “Nadine Morano, la groupie du président” (30 minutes, 2011).
