What do you do when your nation is being swallowed by the sea? Kiribati, an island nation in the Pacific Ocean, is destined to disappear under rising sea levels within decades. 

Former President Anote Tong is racing to find a way to protect his people and secure their future, as they face becoming the first climate refugees in history. While his journey through the possibilities of geo-engineering and diplomacy lead him to the UN Climate Change Conference, ordinary Kiribati citizens are already seeking safe harbour overseas.

Put yourself in the shoes of the people living on the frontline of the climate crisis, with this intimate evocation of a country and community under threat.

Screening as part of 'Take Your Positions!', Bertha DocHouse's pre-COP26 climate focus.

The Bertha DocHouse screen is currently operating at 80% of its seating capacity. That means you will never be in a screening where every seat is occupied, and if, after the film has begun, you would be more comfortable in another unoccupied seat, you are welcome to move
