Albatross Film Screening
Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum
The documentary "Albatross." This film tells the story we learned of a stunning environmental tragedy taking place on a tiny atoll in the center of the vast North Pacific Ocean. Thousands of young albatrosses lay dead on the ground, their stomachs filled with plastic. The experience is devastating, not only for what it meant for the suffering of the birds, but also for what it reflected back to us about the destructive power of our culture of mass consumption, and humanity's damaged relationship with the living world.
