Midway

We talk a lot about litter and what we can do as a school to stop people throwing their rubbish wherever they please. The video ‘Midway’ shows just how devastating litter can be.

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, Chris Jordan and his film team witness the cycles of life and death of these birds and  record the epidemic of albatross death caused by ingestion of human waste. He asks, “Do we have the courage to face the realities of our time and allow ourselves to feel deeply enough that it transforms us and our future?”
