Sun Sets on $35,000 Appeal to Film Vanishing Pacific Island
Anote Tong, Kiribati’s genial leader, has toured UN summits to the North Pole to rally for urgent action on climate change.
His plea is louder than most. Rising seas threaten to engulf his low-lying nation of coral atolls and force the migration of his people within their lifetimes.
The outgoing president, 63, is now the subject of a forthcoming film ‘Anote’s Ark’ by Canadian director, Matthieu Rytz, to bring the island’s plight in a warming planet to a wider audience.
