Synopsis

The Pacific island nation of Kiribati is one of the most remote places on the planet, far-removed from the pressures of modern life. Yet it is one of the first countries that must confront imminent annihilation from sea-level rise.

President Anote Tong races to find options, from mass migration to building underwater cities. But as the water grows higher, many citizens are already seeking safe harbor overseas, leaving behind 4,000 years of Kiribati culture.

With sweeping cinematography, filmmaker Matthieu Rytz captures the shifting dynamics of climate change while crafting an intimate portrait of the Kiribati people that reveals their strength as they face the looming waters head on.
