Midway



The MIDWAY film 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.

MIDWAY continues through 2013. Please go to www.midwayfilm.com for more information.

Around the same age I began to feel a deep affinity with animals – in particular their plight at the hands of humans.
