Anote's Ark
A film by Matthieu Rytz

What if your country was swallowed
by the sea?

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.

Kiribati president Anote Tong races to find options, from mass migration to building underwater cities. But the water grows higher, and citizens are fleeing the island, leaving behind 4000 years of Kirabati culture.

With sweeping cinematography, Anote’s Ark captures the shifting dynamics of climate change while crafting a portrait of the Kiribati people that reveals their strength as they face the looming waters head on.
