International Wildlife Film Festival preview: “Albatross”

The countdown to the 41st annual International Wildlife Film Festival in Missoula continues with today’s trailer, “Albatross,” a 97-minute movie about the plight of albatross chicks.

“On a remote atoll in the North Pacific Ocean, albatross chicks are dying, their bodies filled with plastic. ‘Albatross’ unflinchingly shows the horror of this tragedy, while ultimately bringing us to a deeply felt experience of beauty and love for life on Earth.”

The film is directed by Chris Jordan and screens at the Roxy Theater at 8:30 p.m. On Tuesday, April 17.
