Midway albatros killed by plastic pollution

The trailer of “Midway Project” (bellow) that you’ll see (3′55) is filmed on the island of Midway, which is located in the Pacific Ocean, 3,000 km from the nearest land. Nobody is living on this island, there are only birds, and yet … Look, it’s edifying!!

MIDWAY a Message from the Gyre : a short film by Chris Jordan from Midway.

The MIDWAY media project is a powerful visual journey into the heart of an astonishingly symbolic environmental tragedy. On one of the remotest islands on our planet, tens of thousands of baby albatrosses lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic from the Pacific Garbage Patch. Returning to the island over several years, our team is witnessing the cycles of life and death of these birds as a multi-layered metaphor for our times. With photographer Chris Jordan as our guide, we walk through the fire of horror and grief, facing the immensity of this tragedy—and our own complicity—head on. And in this process, we find an unexpected route to a transformational experience of beauty, acceptance, and understanding.
