How much trash can you pick up from the beach in 5 minutes?
MetadataShow full item record
The specially curated show, dubbed “Alon!,” shows photographs of surfers from the country’s six leading surfing communities—Siargao, La Union, Baler, Mati in Davao, Gubat in Sorsogon, and Sabang Daguitan in Leyte—each holding plastic trash they picked up from the beach in a five-minute period. The photos intend to show the extensive presence of trash from plastic-packaged commodities in the country, may it be in Luzon, Visayas, or Mindanao. In addition to these alarming photos on display, the exhibition, which aims to create awareness of plastic waste and eventually initiate change, also features the the eponymous Alon documentary, written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Gabby Fernandez. The docu will premiere on August 28, a day before the opening night of the exhibition organized by Benilde’s Center for Campus Art.
