PACIFIC HEARTBEAT
Anote’s Ark

Air date: Mon., May 25, 10:00 pm

 

The remote Pacific Island nation of Kiribati is one of the first countries in the world that must confront the effects of climate change. The imminent annihilation from sea-level rise is at their shores, and Kiribati’s President Anote Tong must find a way to save his people. Set against the backdrop of international climate and human rights negotiations, Tong’s struggle for global action is intertwined with the intimate story of Tiemeri, a young mother of six migrating from Kiribati to New Zealand to escape the rising tides. At stake is the survival of Tiemeri’s family, the Kiribati people, and 4,000 years of Kiribati culture.
