MIDWAY, a Message from the Gyre is a short documentary film by Seattle-based photographer Chris Jordan that confronts a heartbreaking reality on Midway Atoll, a cluster of remote islands in the North Pacific Ocean. Thousands of baby albatrosses are dying due to the consumption of plastic from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Jordan has returned to the islands numerous times, capturing this environmental tragedy through photographs of the birds and the waste that killed them, asking us to look at the devastating realities of our time.
MIDWAY is currently in post-production and expected to premiere in 2014. You can donate here.
