Tom posted a trailer for the environmental film ”Midway” on his website,,and shared some poignant words about the power of film and music. Thanks to Tom for raising awareness of this amazing,moving,and thought-provoking film.
Watch this, but it may make you sad.
Also it may help you buy one less thing today.
Or drink from one less plastic bottle.
It’s amazing to me, the symbolism in this.
It’s also amazing how the beauty of art and film and music can have the power to make us think and feel and transform ourselves.
We are at a mid-way place. On a remote and isolated island in the middle of the Pacific, twelve-hundred miles northwest of Hawaii.
This is a moment in time, a chance to witness and understand our role in an astonishing environmental tragedy. This is a place that provides context. Here, reflected in the beauty of the Albatross, is an unfolding horror. Yet it is a horror in which we see our own lives, a snapshot of our impact on the planet that challenges us to consider how to move forward.
Join us on a journey with photographer Chris Jordan, on a breathtaking and emotional journey, into the heart of the Pacific, and into the heart of ourselves.
Production of the feature film “Midway” continues through 2011. For more information:
