Albatross – The Film
July 13, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Albatross – The Film will be presented at the Grace Jollymore Joyce Arts Centre, 7:30 p.m. On a tiny island in the heart of the Pacific, a love story is unfolding. This film is an incredible, life-changing, and timely public artwork created by Chris Jordan. The journey began in 2008 as a collaboration with Manuel Maqueda. They were studying the issue of ocean plastic pollution and learned of an environmental tragedy in the centre of the North Pacific Ocean. On their first trip to Midway Island in 2009, they filmed and photographed thousands of albatrosses dead on the ground, their stomachs filled with plastic. Admission is free, with donations being accepted at the door.
