Here is a short clip from our most recent trip to Midway. It combines footage of a dying albatross with a scene of a baby fairy tern being fed and protected by its mother. We call it “A Dream of a Dying Albatross (Return to the Mother).” The singer is Baaba Maal, from the “One Giant Leap” album; much love to him and his peeps (and BTW that whole album is killer; check it out if you don’t have it already).
We will be returning to Midway again in February 2012 to film and witness hundreds of thousands of albatross babies hatching from their eggs, which our friends on the island say is one of the most beautiful sights on planet Earth. Our film is progressing well, with several exciting announcements coming soon. Stay tuned! ~Chris Jordan
