Event details

EyeSteel Film Inc presents the documentary 'Anote’s Ark'.

What if your country was swallowed by the sea?

Kiribati is one of the most remote places on the planet, seemingly removed from the pressures of modern life. However, it's facing imminent danger from sea-level rise.

While Kiribati's President Anote Tong races to find a way to protect his nation's people and maintain their dignity, many Kiribati are already seeking safe harbour overseas.

Set against the backdrop of international climate and human rights negotiations, Anote's struggle to save his nation is intertwined with the extraordinary fate of Tiemeri, a young mother of six, who fights to migrate her family to New Zealand. At stake is the survival of Tiemeri's family, the Kiribati people, and 4,000 years of Kiribati culture.

The documentary is a collaboration with EyeSteelFilm Inc, Daren Kamali, Senior Curator Pacific at Auckland Libraries, Katherine Mitchell from Auckland Libraries and the Rodney Kiribati community.
