{Beautiful Islands}

beautiful-islands-poster.jpg

This documentary looks at three beautiful islands, shaken by climate change: Tuvalu in the South Pacific, Venice in Italy, and Shishmaref in Alaska. The islands all have different climates and cultures, but the people all love their native lands.

It portrays festivals that foster ties among the people, traditional crafts which have been passed on for generations, and peaceful lives by the water. They are all disappearing by climate change. When these people lose their homelands, their cultures and histories face “death.” Their lives in the midst of all the changes suggest where our future leads. I read that director, Kana Tomoko purposely decided not to put any narration or music in this film because she really wanted the viewer to feel what we are going to lose as climate change really (threatens) hits our planet.

Beautiful Islands is currently screening in select theaters.
