This very moving feature documentary is not to be missed. The film follows three people from Takuu atoll in the Solomon Islands as their community experiences the devastating effects of climate change firsthand. Will they decide to stay with their damaged and sinking island home or move to a new and unfamiliar land, leaving their culture and language behind forever? You can see the trailer for the film here: http://www.
Additionally, we will have Noah Idechong, Speaker of the House of Delegates of Palau and founding member of the Palau Conservation Society, giving a very special video presentation about the effects of climate change on Micronesia and how Palau and other Micronesian nations are looking to combat it through political means.
For planning purposes, the movie runs about 80 minutes long. As always, First Friday Films is free and open to the public. A special thanks goes to the NMI Council for Humanities, who sponsored this film.
See you tomorrow!
