Dirk van der Straaten speaks with director Chris Jordan about the making of Albatross.

Acclaimed photographic artist, filmmaker, and cultural activist Chris Jordan documents the consequences of our collective disconnect from nature by turning his lens on the plight of the albatross at Midway Atoll, more than 1,300 miles from the nearest store yet directly impacted by swirling accumulations of plastic debris in the North Pacific Gyre. Chris's work puts the incomprehensible into perspective. His images of Midway confront the true toll of our plastic addiction and growing aversion to grief, inviting the audience to consider what we stand to lose, indeed what we're already losing, should we continue to turn away from our emotions.
