Green Film Festival @UEA - Anote's Ark

18 May 2019 - 19:00

Anote's Ark is a captivating and beautiful film with a hard-hitting message. The Pacific Island nation of Kiribati is one of the first countries that must confront the main existential dilemma of our time: imminent annihilation from sea-level rise. Set against the backdrop of international climate and human rights negotiations, Kiribati's President Anote Tong's struggle to save his nation is intertwined with the extraordinary story of Tiemeri (Sermary), a young mother of six, who aims to move her family from Kiribati to New Zealand.

This film will also be preceded by a fascinating and highly informative introductory talk from Raja Segaran Kuppusamy, who leads the Emergency Disaster/Crisis Response team for the UN International Organisation for Migration. In addition, the film screening of Anote's Ark will be followed by a filmmaker Q&A.
