Waves of Change: Climate Change Tok Stori FIlm presentation

January 31, 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Crawford 105

The Waves of Change: Climate Change Tok Stori presents two short films Tofiga O Pili Aau (Sāmoa) 2010 and Sun Come Up (USA) 2010 followed by a discussion panel with Dr Fata Simanu-Klutz, Rachel Miller, and Derek Mane. Tofiga O Pili Aau features initiatives by eight villages on Savaiʻi and Upolu islands to mitigate the impacts of climate change on their environment, livelihoods, and infrastructure. The film was devised, planned, filmed, and directed by a group of 12 community representatives during a workshop held in the villages of Fasitoʻotai and Fagamalo.

Sun Come Up is a film that shows the human face of climate change. The film follows the relocation of the Carteret Islanders. When climate change threatens their survival, the islanders must leave their ancestral land in search of a new place to call home.

This film series is co-sponsored by the Academy for Creative Media, Pacific Islanders in Communications, and the Pan Pacific Association.
