Albatross Film Screening
Following his shocking photographs of dead albatross chicks and the diet of plastic that killed them, Chris Jordan’s new film is a call to action to repair our broken relationship with planet Earth.
We are living in a plastic age and the solutions may seem glaringly obvious, so why aren’t all 7.6 billion of us already doing things differently? Shocking statistics don’t guarantee effective change. So what’s the alternative? American photographer and filmmaker Chris Jordan believes the focus should be on forcing people to have a stronger emotional engagement with the problems plastic causes. His famous photographs of dead albatross chicks and the colourful plastic they have ingested serve as a blunt reminder that the planet is in a state of emergency.
The Aldabra Clean Up Project are hosting this event. The project is a collaboration between graduate students from Queen’s College and the Seychelles Islands Foundation with the aim to clean-up Aldabra, an iconic world heritage site that has been bombarded with ocean plastic pollution. The team will combine the clean up of Aldabra with outreach and education, campaigning and scientific research. https://queens.hubbub.net/p/AldabraProject/pitch/
