"Do we have the courage to face the realities of our time, allow ourselves to feel deeply enough that it transforms us and our future?" - Chris Jordan, ALBATROSS
Littleton High School invites you to join us for a FREE special screening of Chris Jordan's award winning documentary ALBATROSS. A discussion with visual artists Regan Rosburg (www.reganrosburg.com) and Jennifer Jeannelle (www.jenniferjeannelle.com) will follow. The screening of this visionary film is a kick-off fundraising event bringing inspirational speakers and creative artist workshops to Littleton youth during Littleton High School's International Week in November 2018. Although the screening is free, any donations collected will support our effort to bring dynamic speakers and workshops to all students. Suggested donation of $5-20 per ticket is greatly appreciated. A cash bar and appetizers will be available at the event.
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 through horror and grief, facing the shock of this tragedy and our own complicity head on.
Internationally-acclaimed photographic artist Chris Jordan (www.chrisjordan.com), in his filmmaking debut, returned to Midway over many years with his team, documenting the cycles of life and death, and capturing stunning and intimate portraits of these magnificent seabirds.
