What if
your country was swallowed by the sea? A portrait of paradise on the brink.

As rising sea levels threaten the low-lying
Pacific nation of Kiribati, its president, Anote Tong, seeks to wake up policy
makers across the globe to the reality of climate change and to help his
homeland from being washed off the face of the earth.

For many of his people, such as mother-of-six
Sermary, climate change is already an inescapable reality, with typhoons and
saltwater repeatedly destroying homes and livelihoods. While Mr Tong seeks
global solutions – some of which advocate building floating islands or
underwater cities – Sermary considers abandoning her endangered homeland for a
new life thousands of kilometers away in New Zealand, and becoming one of
Kiribati’s many climate refugees.

Beyond the Screen

There will be a discussion time after the film led
by Henry Boswell to explore climate justice and Scotland’s role within it.

The Film is Presented byTake One Action

Take One Action nurtures communal exploration of
the stories, ideas and questions at the heart of positive social change.
Through film screenings, conversation and enquiry, we bring people together to
inspire a fairer, more sustainable and more fulfilling world, in Scotland and
beyond our borders.

Funded
by Argyll and Bute Council Supporting Communities Fund, and the Climate Fringe
event fund.
