How do you save a people from the first Atlantis of our time?
The problem with creating popular involvement with the issue of climate change, it is said, is that it is so abstract. For the inhabitants of the small island nation of Kiribati in the Pacific Ocean, it is as concrete as it gets: the waves are washing away their living room floors. The rising of the ocean is already so serious that the inhabitants are aknowledging that there is no hope. By the end of this century, Kiribati will be under water.
Anote’s ark is an astonishingly beautiful, award-winning documentary which follows the president of Kiribati, Anote Tong, in his tireless fight to warn world leaders that Kiribati is just the beginning of a global catastrophe, and to find a solution for his people.
