Finding Refuge: Crossroads Film Series - Anote's Ark

The World Affairs Council of NH presents Finding Refuge, a three-part documentary film and discussion series funded by a New Hampshire Humanities project grant that will explore the global refugee crisis, which has left 68.5 million people forcibly displaced worldwide.

What happens when your nation is swallowed by the sea?

With the harsh realities of climate change looming, the low-lying Pacific nation Kiribati must find a new solution for the survival of its people. With sweeping cinematography, Anote's Ark interweaves two poignant stories. Anote Tong, endearing president of the island, races to find options-advocating in international climate negotiations and even investigating building underwater cities. At the same time, warm and sharp-witted Sermery, a young mother of six, tackles every struggle with humour. She must decide whether to leave the only culture she knows on the island and migrate to a new life in New Zealand. Anote's Ark captures the next evolution in the shifting dynamics of climate change-one where borders, technology, and global treaties are urgent and can change daily life as we know it. A discussion after the film will be facilitated by Sara Withers, leading a panel of speakers from the Union of Concerned Scientist and the League of Conservation Voters.
