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 and his filming team witnessed cycles of birth, life, and death of these magnificent creatures as a multi-layered metaphor for our times. Albatross was an Official Selection at the Telluride Mountain Film Festival in May 2017, and the movie trailer was viewed and discussed at the United Nations on World Oceans Day in June 2017. Filmmaker Chris Jordan will be present for a talk-back discussion following the screening. Following the launch of Albatross, PlatteForum will host an opening reception on Saturday, Sept. 16, 6-9PM for an exhibition, Axis Mundi, featuring twenty-one artists from across the US and Canada. This series of events will be part of Denver’s Biennial of the Americas. Visit platteforum.org for more information
