There Once was an Island

When a terrifying tidal flood rips through the Polynesian community of Takuu, a tiny low-lying atoll in the South Western Pacific, islanders experience the devastating effects of climate change first hand. Three of them show us the human impact of an environmental crisis as they question whether to move to an uncertain future in Bougainville or stay and fight for a different, equally uncertain, outcome. They give a human face to the direct impacts of climate change in the Pacific, challenging us to consider our own relationship to the earth and the other people
on it.
