‘Albatross’ World Oceans Day film screening

To celebrate this year’s World Oceans Day on Friday 8 June, we’ll be hosting a special screening of the long-awaited film ‘Albatross’, by acclaimed filmmaker and photographer Chris Jordan, at The Flagship Education Centre in Auckland’s downtown Wynyard Quarter. We have used Chris’ stunning and shocking imagery since establishing Sustainable Coastlines to starkly illustrate the impacts of plastic pollution, and this film delves deeply into this story.

The movie starts at 7.00pm, but doors are open from 5pm, with smooth tunes provided by the fabulous Murry Sweetpants followed by salty stories to warm us up from 6pm. We’ll have Michele and Jon Henderson tell tales of their 16k nautical mile journey to Aotearoa on their sailboat the Areda. Their experiences throughout the journey, (particularly in the South Pacific and the Pitcairn Islands) made the plastic problem very personal.

Entry is free, and the bar will be open with drinks from our friends at Corona, Yealand’s Wines and Phoenix Organics. We’re even putting on pizzas thanks to our buddies at Sal’s Pizza.
