    I deeply appreciate what you are doing and the way you are doing it. You have inspired me in new ways. Do you need an environmental anthropologist (PhD)….? Will work for food…

    I try doing as much as I can to decrease my harmful footprint on this beautiful world we our so grateful to have. I take the stairs when possible, recycle everything possible of what comes into my household, even composting organic material, have my own eco-friendly vegetable garden, thought about fuel/energy economy on the automobile I purchased, eat cooked meals at home, when I go to the beach, I pick up waste thrown from boats, and then look to my side and see someone throwing things out of their cars onto the street. It’s just frustrating there is no awareness.
    Thank you soo much for doing your part in creating awareness. It is greatly needed.

    Thanks for your wonderful job. I’m fighting against lost plastic in out towns somewere in France.
    I created a website to try to change our behaviour about plastic, to have the reflex to pick up the plastic we find anywhere.
    You can have a look and forward the information.
    Sorry for the google translation…

    I just watched the trailer for this, and I must say, it is quite moving. I can’t wait to see the full feature. What is the lovely guitar piece playing during the trailer?

    So simple and yet so strong a message: pollution kills. We are all interconnected in the dance of life and loss, even those not ready to hold hands and rise up. Thank you for bringing the song of grief and love to those of us who appreciate it.
    In love and light, Betsey

    The message is very direct through the trailer film! Oh! What to do? Really we (the humans) are not keeping the right things on right path! So let us try our level best to keep things in track started from the self, extended to family, colony, communities, villages, districts, states, countries and the whole world!

    I wish we all would strive forward for the better future! I also wish the midway journey to keep up its work and do share! I wish to contribute to its work as a volunteer, if there is such possibility, especially in India to take forward the mission further!

    Pleasant, Sridhar

    A film about the plight of sea birds of the islands midway that eating our plastic waste die in a horrible way, dutiful look to realize the harm we do to all the inhabitants of our planet / ecosystem throwing waste into the environment and not attivandoci in a useful recycling!

    Un film sulla condizione degli uccelli marini delle isole midway che mangiando i nostri rifiuti di plastica muoiono in un modo atroce, doveroso guardarlo per rendersi conto del male che facciamo a tutti gli abitanti di questo nostro pianeta/ecosistema buttando i rifiuti nell’ambiente e non attivandoci in un loro utile riciclo!!!

    thank you for showing us this reality…i almost died..but thank you <3 i deeply appreciate what you are doing with your talent. Good luck!

    What can we do other than donate? Contact our supermarkets to demand less packaging? Write to our local authorities to demand greater recycling schemes? Write to major retailers to encourage and empower change? Please tell us what we can do and how we can readdress the balance and stop this from happening. This is so sad and I hate to feel helpless when I have little money to contribute, as I donate what I can, when I can and sometimes I have nothing more to give.

    What an excellent trailer – beautiful filming showing the beauty of the place and the devastation that we have caused. Your work helps to promote awareness of the problem and clearly demonstrates the need for urgent action.

    I am 86 and not optimistic about the future for my grandchildren.The two main problems are human behaviour and overpopulation.The former will not improve but the best cure for the latter would be a very severe epidemic of something with no cure such very severe flu.Unfortunately the choice of who would be affected would be left to chance.

    I have been so moved by the trailer to your film that I am seeking to make a life change and bring as many people from my community as I can with me on my journey. I’ll be organising people to take part in Plastic Free July ( and raise money for our locally endangered sea bird, the Grey Faced Petrel. However, I’m taking things a step further and am not going to buy any plastic products for one year. I’m looking forward to the challenge and hope to highlight how reliant we are on the plastics industry, and how difficult it is to be a discerning consumer due to the lack of choice.
    Thank you for your inspiring work. It is certainly galvanising change; it only takes one individual to act at a local level make a huge difference.

    The MIDWAY media project is a powerful visual journey into the heart of an astonishingly symbolic environmental tragedy. On one of the remotest islands on our planet, tens of thousands of baby albatrosses lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic from the Pacific Garbage Patch. Returning to the island over several years, our team is witnessing the cycles of life and death of these birds as a multi-layered metaphor for our times. With photographer Chris Jordan as our guide, we walk through the fire of horror and grief, facing the immensity of this tragedy—and our own complicity—head on. And in this process, we find an unexpected route to a transformational experience of beauty, acceptance, and understanding.

    We frame our story in the vividly gorgeous language of state-of-the-art high-definition digital cinematography, surrounded by millions of live birds in one of the world’s most beautiful natural sanctuaries. The viewer will experience stunning juxtapositions of beauty and horror, destruction and renewal, grief and joy, birth and death, coming out the other side with their heart broken open and their worldview shifted. Stepping outside the stylistic templates of traditional environmental or documentary films, MIDWAY will take viewers on a guided tour into the depths of their own spirits, delivering a profound message of reverence and love that is already reaching an audience of tens of millions of people around the world.
