Saving Kiribati – a documentary
10 October 2019 | Environment
While Kiribati’s President Anote Tong races to find a way to protect his nation’s people and maintain their dignity, many Kiribati are already seeking safe harbour overseas.
Set against the backdrop of international climate and human rights negotiations, Anote’s struggle to save his nation is intertwined with the extraordinary fate of Tiemeri, a young mother of six, 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.
To see what the future holds, the documentary Anote’s Ark is screened at the Scientific Society on Monday (14 October) at 19:30. Entrance is free.
