Join the Friends of Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge and the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation as they present a screening of the film “Albatross.” Following the screening they will hold a discussion featuring filmmaker Chris Jordan. The film is a stunning visual journey, exploring the impacts of global plastic pollution in the ocean through the eyes of the albatross. Jordan records the cycles of birth, life, and death of these magnificent seabirds. His photographs of albatross bodies laden with ingested plastic have become symbolic of our broken relationship with the living world. Filmed on Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge, one of the world’s most beautiful natural sanctuaries within the remote Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, “Albatross” illustrates the consequences of our reliance on single-use plastics.
