Albatross Film Screening in Portland

Join us in honor of World Oceans Day for the PORTLAND SCREENING of the new film ALBATROSS! 

Presented in Collaboration with HI Portland Hawthorne HostelSurfrider Foundation Portland ChapterUnited Nations Association of PortlandHawthorne Boulevard Business Association and Spirit of 77.

Albatross is a stunning visual journey exploring the impacts of global plastic pollution through the eyes of the albatross on the remote Midway Atoll in the Hawaiian archipelago. Filmmaker Chris Jordan and team witness cycles of birth, life and death of these magnificent seabirds and challenge us to face consequences of our reliance on single-use plastics increasingly found in our ocean ecosystem. Join us for a post-screening discussion as we process the film and discuss ways you can take action! See the trailer here: https://vimeo.com/218502282

Admission is free for all viewers, with donations being invited on a voluntary basis. ALBATROSS contains some intense emotional content around grief and death, so we recommend it for viewers age 12 and older. 

Come dressed as your favorite marine creature and get your photo taken at our "I ditched the straw" photo/selfie station. Win great prizes at our raffle too. 

Your participation also supports our awesome hosts, Spirit of 77, who is one of the growing list of Portland's bars and restaurants who have agreed to ditch the plastic straw and start an upon request policy for a paper straw alternative!
