Film - There Once Was An Island
What if your community had to decide whether to leave their homeland forever and there was no help available? This is the reality for the culturally unique Polynesian community of Takuu, a tiny low-lying atoll in the South Western Pacific. As a terrifying tidal flood rips through their already damaged home, the Takuu community experiences the devastating effects of climate change first hand. Two scientists, oceanographer John Hunter and geomorphologist Scott Smithers, investigate the situation and consider the impact of climate change on communities without access to resources or support. Intimate observational scenes allow three intrepid characters Teloo, Endar and Satty to take us on their personal journeys as they consider whether to move to an uncertain future in Bougainville or to stay on Takuu and fight for a different, but equally uncertain, outcome.
