MIDWAY – a film by Chris Jordan

Antonio Lopez‘s insight:

"Do we have the courage to feel the realities of our time? And allow it to feel deeply enough that it transforms us? And our future?"


So asks photographer and environmental artist Chris Jordan as he narrates the trailer for his upcoming documentary, MIdway, about the impact of plastic trash on bird populations on a remote island in the Pacific Ocean. Though this is difficult to watch, I believe it is exactly the kind of green media that will help change culture, for it extends empathy beyond our everyday reality to species outside our normal perception.
