Anote’s Ark (2018)

Tuesday, February 5, 7:00 PM
Community Foundation Theater, Gund Gallery

The idyllic Pacific nation of Kiribati will be submerged within decades due to climate change. As President Anote Tong passionately fights to save his people and 4,000 years of Kiribati culture, islanders are already feeling the pressure to relocate.  Set against international climate negotiations and the fight to recognize climate displacement, Anote’s Ark presents personal stories that serve as cautionary tales for the entire world.

After the film, a discussion will be led by Shaun Golding, Assistant Professor of Sociology, and students from his course, “What’s in Our Pipeline?”.
