Chris Jordan's Albatross: Screening and Conversation with Filmmaker

Tuesday, April 10, 7 – 9 p.m.
Kane Hall, Room 110

Screening of Chris Jordan's Albatross (2017) followed by a conversation with the filmmaker.

ALBATROSS is a powerful visual journey into the heart of a gut-wrenching environmental tragedy. On Midway island, in the remote North Pacific Ocean, tens of thousands of Laysan albatross chicks lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic. ALBATROSS takes us on a journey through horror and grief, facing the shock of this tragedy and our own complicity head on.

Internationally-acclaimed photographic artist Chris Jordan, in his filmmaking debut, returned to Midway over many years with his team, documenting the cycles of life and death, and capturing stunning and intimate portraits of these magnificent seabirds.
