Anote's Ark



Anote's Ark


Friday 25 January 8.30pm Channel 039

What if your country was swallowed by the sea? The Pacific Island nation of Kiribati (population: 100,000) is one of the most remote places on the planet, seemingly far-removed from the pressures of modern life. Yet it is one of the first countries that must confront an unspoken dilemma of our time - imminent annihilation from rising sea levels. While Kiribati’s President Anote Tong races to find a way to protect his nation’s people and maintain their dignity, many Kiribati are already seeking safe harbour overseas. Set against the backdrop of international climate, human rights negotiations and Anote’s struggle to save his nation.  At stake is the survival of the Kiribati people, and 4,000 years of Kiribati culture.
