Event Details

Event Date: January 9th, 2012
Venue: Streaming Cafe
Event Time: 7:00 pm
Cost: Free

We’re extremely fortunate to have such an accomplished cinematographer with us for Katalyst on Jan. 9, 2012 @ 7pm at the Streaming Cafe.

Jan Vozenilek will be talking about some of the latest projects he’s been working on including the Midway documentary with Seattle-based / award-winning photographer Chris Jordan. He was invited to speak at the TED X conference this past summer about this project and has created a lot of stir & awareness on the issue of plastic usage.

Jan has been on a journey that began with a surprising invitation which turned into a lifetime project and reels of stunning film footage. As part of a film crew who has traveled to the remote island of Midway Atoll in the North Pacific, Vozenilek is documenting an ongoing horrifically symbolic environmental tragedy that affects us all. Midway is an island three kilometers long and home to millions of albatrosses who cannot distinguish between plastic trash and their traditional seafood fare. In this process, Vozenilek will pose bigger questions about what this tragedy means to society as a whole, and what can be done about it.
