Anote's Ark (Film & Discussion)

What if your country was swallowed by the sea? The Pacific island nation of Kiribati (population 100,000) is one of the most remote places on the planet, and one of the first to confront imminent annihilation from sea-level rise. Set against the backdrop of international climate and human rights negotiations, former Kiribati president Anote Tong’s struggle to save his nation is intertwined with the extraordinary fate of a young mother of six, who fights to migrate her family to New Zealand. At stake is the survival of the Kiribati people and 4,000 years of Kiribati culture. Film is followed by a discussion with filmmaker Matthieu Rytz.
