About the films:

Anote’s Ark: The Pacific Island nation of Kiribati is one of the most remote places on the planet, seemingly far-removed from the pressures of modern life. Yet it is one of the first countries that must confront the existential dilemma of our time: imminent annihilation from sea-level rise. While Kiribati’s former President Anote Tong races to find a way to protect his nation’s people and maintain their dignity, many Kiribati are already seeking safe harbor overseas. Set against the backdrop of international climate and human rights negotiations, Anote’s struggle to save his nation is intertwined with the fate of Tiemeri, a young mother who fights to migrate her family to New Zealand. At stake is the survival of Tiemeri’s family, the Kiribati people, and 4,000 years of Kiribati culture.
Love Note to an Island: This moving short film by Lulu DeBoer shows her visiting her home island of Kiribati for the first time in over 20 years, only to find that climate change will soon wash it away. But instead of despair, the love and hope of the country spurs her on to find solutions to adapt
