The film

Photographer and director Chris Jordan worked eight years on this movie about the Albatrosses on the island Midland in the Pacific Ocean. This special bird trusts the sea completely in supplying food. Because of the pollution of the ocean, plastic has become a full part of the ecosystem of the bird with disastrous consequences for the existence it. The film was shown on the Movies that Matter festival in The Hague and Pakhuis De Zwijger in Amsterdam. Read more about the movie.
