Our friend kris Krug, who was set to speak at TEDxYYC on April 1 has had a change of plans. As previously mentioned, he’s been given a remarkable opportunity to participate in Midway, a feature film in production this year in the middle of the Pacific. He and the crew will be helping to tell a story about the disasterous impact our plastic addiction has on our environment. It will be a story we all need to hear.
From the Midway website:
“We are at a mid-way place. On a remote and isolated island in the middle of the Pacific, twelve-hundred miles northwest of Hawaii.
This is a moment in time, a chance to witness and understand our role in an astonishing environmental tragedy. This is a place that provides context. Here, reflected in the beauty of the Albatross, is an unfolding horror. Yet it is a horror in which we see our own lives, a snapshot of our impact on the planet that challenges us to consider how to move forward.
Join us, on a breathtaking and emotional journey, into the heart of the Pacific, and into the heart of ourselves. Production of the feature film “Midway” continues through 2011.”
