About Short Film Showcase:
The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.

In Kenya, being caught with a plastic bag can land you with a fine of $38,000 USD or four years in jail. Since the introduction of these extreme laws, innovators have responded in amazing and unexpected ways. One group of local fisherman in Lamu are building a giant sailing ship entirely from plastic waste. They intend to sail the Indian Ocean to raise awareness about marine plastic pollution.
