ALBATROSS film screening

When: Wed., Oct. 25, 7 p.m. 2017

ALBATROSS will have its theatrical premiere in Charleston in conjunction with Chris Jordan’s exhibition "Midway" at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. In the film, Jordan presents his trips to Midway Atoll islands in the Pacific Ocean that receive very little human contact. Despite its isolation from the rest of the world, Midway sits amid the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a swirling vortex of plastic waste carried via currents from all around the world. Jordan’s film gives viewers an intimate look into the lives of the native Laysan albatrosses and how their existence is threatened by human activity.
