Midway is an upcoming documentary with a strong potential to help people rethink their daily habits when it comes to how we dispose of our waste and our use of disposable products, particularly plastic, much of which is winding up in an area in the pacific that is now known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This particular area is believed to be twice the size of the continental United States and causing major harm to the ocean, wildlife and us.
Below you can see a touching trailer for this film directed by Chris Jordan, Sabine Emiliani and produced by Stephanie Levyas which is getting ready for a festival debut in 2014.
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.
