Check out the trailer for the feature-length film, Midway. It's both fascinating and heartbreaking at the same time.

Using spare narration and stunning imagery, Chris Jordan’s feature film Midway explores the plight of the Laysan albatross plagued by the ingestion of our plastic trash. Both elegy and warning, the film explores the interconnectedness of species, with the albatross on Midway as a mirror of our humanity.

Midway is a feature length film in production schedules to premiere in late 2013. Our film is made possible from generous donation and grants. Please contribute through Fractured Atlas. All donations are tax deductible.


We covered Chris's first photographic journey to Midway Atoll back in 2009.

Thanks to Ray for the tip.
