Film Screening - "Albatross" by Chris Jordan - Presented with Parley for the Oceans

The Explorers Club and Parley for the Oceans cordially invite you to a screening of Albatross - A love story for our time from the heart of the Pacific.

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. With photographer Chris Jordan as our guide, we walk through the fire of horror and grief, facing the immensity of this tragedy—and our own complicity—head on. And in this process, we find an unexpected route to a transformational experience of beauty, acceptance, and understanding.

The film will be introduced by Chris Jordan and Parley founder Cyril Gutsch, with a live Q&A to follow the screening.

Date: Wednesday, September 13

Time: 6:00 pm Reception, 7:00 pm Screening
