ALBATROSS
ALBATROSS
ALBATROSS is a powerful visual journey into the heart of a gut-wrenching environmental tragedy. On one of the remotest islands on Earth, tens of thousands of albatross chicks lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic. Returning to the island over several years, Chris and his filming team witnessed cycles of birth, life, and death of these magnificent creatures as a multi-layered metaphor for our times. ALBATROSS walks us through the fire of horror and grief, facing the immensity of this tragedy — and our own complicity — head on. And in this process, we find an unexpected route to a deeply felt experience of beauty and love for the miracle of life on Earth. Stepping outside the stylistic templates of traditional environmental or documentary films, ALBATROSS takes viewers on a lyrical guided tour into the depths of their own spirits, delivering a profound message of reverence and renewal that is already reaching an audience of millions of people around the world.
Bio - Director
First-time director Chris Jordan is well-known for his photographic work that explores the collective shadow of contemporary mass culture. Edge-walking the line between beauty and horror, abstraction and representation, the near and the far, the visible and the invisible, Jordan’s work confronts the enormous power of humanity’s collective will. His works are exhibited and published worldwide.
