Watching The Trailer For Chris Jordan’s Documentary ‘MIDWAY’ Is Not How We Wanted To End The Week.

Dead albatross full of plastic waste.Chris Jordan’s 2009 images of dead albatross’s full of plastic waste is going to get more real. He’s made a Kickstarter funded film, “MIDWAY,” about the isolated Midway Atoll and how plastic waste from our Pacific Garbage Patch is remotely killing its albatrosses. From Chris Jordan:

“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.”

The trailer is not easy to watch and maybe that’s necessary to make people more aware of what they throw out. [LS]
