One World Films and Conversations Presents Anote’s Ark

Join 350.org Washington County for another thought-provoking film and conversation. We hope for a great turnout and conversation just like our past film events. Bring your friends and family and let’s explore issues and talk!

Free film and free popcorn, and lots of expertise on climate crisis issues in the room.

Because climate change is already changing lives around the world, this year we will focus on frontline experiences of neighbors far away and near to us.


About Anote’s Ark:

A look at the devastating effects that climate change has on the people living on Kiribati, a low-lying atoll in the Pacific. What happens when your nation is swallowed by the sea? With the harsh realities of climate change looming, the low-lying Pacific nation Kiribati must find a new solution for the survival of its people. With sweeping cinematography, Anote’s Ark interweaves two poignant stories. Anote Tong, endearing president of the island, races to find options – advocating in international climate negotiations and even investigating building underwater cities. At the same time, warm and sharp-witted Sermery, a young mother of six, tackles every struggle with humour. She must decide whether to leave the only culture she knows on the island and migrate to a new life in New Zealand. Anote’s Ark captures the next evolution in the shifting dynamics of climate change-one where borders, technology, and global treaties are urgent and can change daily life as we know it. This portrait of the Kiribati people exudes strength of character and grace as they confront the inevitable change they are facing head-on.

Bring a friend, enjoy free popcorn and free-ranging local community conversation – don’t miss this great event!
