About the film
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 Jordan and his film crew witnessed the birth, life, and death of these magnificent creatures - a confronting metaphor for our times. ALBATROSS walks us through the horror and grief that emerges from facing the immensity of this tragedy, and our own complicity, head on. It is only though this form of witnessing we might realize how precarious the miracle of life on Earth really is. 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.
As ALBATROSS is an adult film with strong emotional content, we recommend it for viewers age 12 and above.
