Kris Krug is on a remote and isolated island in the middle of the Pacific, twelve-hundred miles northwest of Hawaii, working on the feature film “Midway”. Along with other artists including photographer and multi-media artist Chris Jordan, Kris is documenting the "astonishing environmental tragedy, reflected in the beauty and horror of the Albatross, which are killed their own chicks through inadvertently feeding them our castoff plastic bits. 

The film intends to serve as "a snapshot of our impact on the planet that challenges us to consider how to move forward."
