Albatross Film Screening

Join us for a free evening event with film screening, guest speakers and supper included.

In the heart of the world's greatest ocean, a story is taking place that may change the way you see everything.

ALBATROSS is a powerful visual journey into the heart of a gut-wrenching environmental tragedy. On Midway island, in the remote North Pacific Ocean, tens of thousands of Laysan albatross chicks lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic. ALBATROSS takes us on a journey, as we face this tragedy we must also confront our own complicity head on.

This beautiful and powerful film will draw you in and leave you contemplating the impact of our disposable society and what we can all do about it.
