DIY, Film & Sharing

Transition Berkeley & the Ecology Center Present: Plastic-free July Event!

“Albatross” Film & DIY Opportunities

Thursday, July 12, 2018, 6-9 pm

6 -7pm – DIY and refreshments, 7 pm-program starts                          

(Parents are advised that this film is not recommended for young children)

Join our “Plastic-free July Event” for an evening of connecting to nature and hands-on ways to lessen our impact!

“ALBATROSS” explores the beauty and tragedy in the cycles of birth, life, and death of creatures that live in the middle of the ocean on Midway Island, thousands of miles away from the nearest continent. Director Chris Jordan describes the motivations of the Midway Project as a drive to “convey the intensely vivid sensual, emotional, and spiritual experience of being with [the birds] on the island.” The intimacy of the birds’ nurturing, poetic and cyclical lives is starkly contrasted by the shocking images portraying the devastation of the effects of an unhealthy ocean.

Refreshments & DIY Opportunities: Come between 6-7 pm and learn how to make simple products you use every day to eliminate plastics in your life. Bring an earth-friendly, package-free snack to share if you like!

This event is sponsored by: Transition Berkeley, the Ecology Center and Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists
