Strong Winds: Matagi Malohi

SYNOPSIS

Tuvalu, the fourth-smallest country in the world by area, is a delicate ribbon of land in the Pacific Ocean whose inhabitants’ lives have long been intertwined with the sea. With climate change, however, the sea might swallow their homeland; climate models predict the island’s current children may be the last native Tuvaluans. This short but striking film follows the activists working to change this fate. Their rally cry: “We are not drowning, we are fighting.”
