{ Film | Midway by Chris Jordan - A love story for our time }

Midway Island, North Pacific Ocean 
more than 2000 miles from the nearest continent... 
The MIDWAY film project is a powerful visual journey into the heart of an astonishingly symbolic environmental tragedy. On one of the remotest islands on our planet, tens of thousands of baby albatrosses lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic from the Pacific Garbage Patch. Returning to the island over several years, our team is witnessing the cycles of life and death of these birds as a multi-layered metaphor for our times. With photographer Chris Jordan as our guide, we walk 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 transformational experience of beauty, acceptance, and understanding.

I wonder if there may be some value in simply honoring this in-between place, acknowledging the space of open possibility where we stand. This is the moment of dissolution before the new form emerges, the imaginal space of potential from which all else will flow. As the marine scientist Sylvia Earle says: the next ten years are the most important in the next ten thousand.“
– Chris Jordan

 Is a real eye opener on a Such a great work.
The film is 'connecting' us in ways that are so necessary and missing
The video tells a shameful tale - one of many that can be told about our race and our clearly unsustainable practices.
It seems that "no more plastics" is the answer. But what is the next-best-answer? It can be difficult to know where to begin and how to have an affect. Thank you to the makers of this film for taking a step in the right direction - for doing all that was possible and what probably at some points seemed like the impossible.

I feel my responsibility as a blogger to publicize, promote and share this hight quality of work. Thank you for this incredible but heartbreaking movie - Congratulations to the MIDWAY Team. 

Thank you all for share this...
