Film Summary

Wyn Wiley (he/him), aka Pattie Gonia (she/her), has made waves over the past year as an environmental advocate drag queen. Wiley and his alter ego are here to tell you that “Mother Natch” is hella pissed. In Dear Mother Nature, Wiley uses the community of allies he has built around his persona to bring attention to a dire environmental disaster washing up on the shores of Hawaii: single-use plastics. Wiley witnesses plastic in the GI tracts of loggerhead sea turtles, engages in the Sisyphean task of cleaning up brittle fragments of beach plastic, and ultimately creates inspirational works of art out of the wreckage.
