On one of the remotest islands on Earth, thousands of albatross chicks lie dead on the ground – their bodies are filled with plastic.
Returning to the island over several years, Chris Jordan and his film crew witnessed the cycles of birth, life and death of these magnificent creatures as a multi-layered metaphor for our times. ALBATROSS walks us through the horror and grief of this environmental tragedy, but ultimately brings us to a deeply felt experience of beauty and love for life on Earth.
Stepping outside of traditional documentary film style, ALBATROSS is a powerful visual journey that brings viewers together into a shared experience of reverence and renewal.
Kesselschmiede Kassel, Fulle Welle & Surfrider Foundation Berlin are happy to host you and the film for an amazing & unique night! We’ll open the event with little talks about our blue projects after which ALBATROSS will be presented with some welcoming and closing words by Surfrider’s Luca, who’s traveled with the film all across Germany. Come with us on this impressive journey into the heart of the Pacific!
ALBATROSS comes in full length (97 min) and in English language. It is an adult film with strong emotional content, so we recommend it for viewers age 12 and above.
