MIDWAY: Devastating Imagery from the Pacific

Ouch. This film footage, a trailer from a documentary by Chris Jordan, called Midway, kinds tears you up. What you see, the plastics and litter, are from inside the digestive systems of dead albatross birds on an UNINHABITED ISLAND in the Pacific, near the Pacific Gyre (that floating garbage patch out in the middle of the ocean where currents naturally drive plastics and other litter into an enormous floating dump).

Take that in…birds from an uninhabited region, choking to death on our garbage…

Support the film if you can, due to be completed and released later this year.
