'Sneak Peek' Film Preview: "Midway" (Chris Jordan) -- Using spare narration and stunning imagery, Chris Jordan's feature film "Midway" explores the plight of Laysan albatross plagued by the ingestion of our plastic trash. Both elegy and warning, the film explores the interconnectedness of species, with the albatross on Midway as a mirror of our humanity. -- As a prelude to the conference, "Across the Threshold: Creativity, Being, & Healing" (Feb 28 - March 3) - focused this year on Personal/Social/Environmental Transformation - acclaimed photographic artist, cultural/environmental activist, and filmmaker Jordan will give a presentation (with clips) about his in-progress documentary. A Q&A session will follow the presentation. -- Jordan is the keynote speaker for the Across the Threshold conference: http://danceprogram.duke.edu/threshold/key-presenters -- This event is made possible by a Visiting Artist Grant from the Council for the Arts, Office of the Provost, Duke University; and generous support from the Mary Duke Biddle Foundation.
