About the Film:

Directed by Chris Jordan. 2017. USA. 97 min.

Presented in collaboration with the Friends of Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge and the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation. 

Albatross is a stunning visual journey exploring the impacts of global plastic pollution through the eyes of the albatross on the remote Midway Atoll in the Hawaiian archipelago within Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. Filmmaker Chris Jordan—whose photographs of decomposing albatross bodies revealing kaleidoscopic compositions of ingested, deadly plastic were included in the museum's 2016 exhibition Plastic Fantastic?—records cycles of birth, life, and death of these magnificent seabirds, illustrating the consequences of our reliance on single-use plastics.  

Special guests: A post-screening discussion will feature experts talking about ways you can take action. Panelists to be announced. 

Admission: Free with RSVP.

Doors open at 3:30pm. Not suitable for children under 12.
