The Charleston Music Hall is excited to team up with the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art to present a free screening of ALBATROSS – A Love Story for Our Time From the Heart of the Pacific. A documentary film by photographer Chris Jordan, ALBATROSS, will have its theatrical premiere in Charleston in conjunction with Jordan’s exhibition, Midway, at the Halsey Institute. The exhibition and film are programmatic elements of the SEA CHANGE partnership between the Halsey Institute and the South Carolina Aquarium. In the film, Jordan presents his trips to Midway Atoll, an island chain in the Pacific Ocean that receives very little human contact. Despite its isolation from the rest of the world, Midway sits amid the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a swirling vortex of plastic waste carried via currents from all around the world.

Jordan’s film gives viewers an intimate look into the lives of the native Laysan albatrosses and how their existence is threatened by the plastic waste habits of the rest of the world.
