Oceania: Encounters at the Edge
A filmic investigation of shifting intersections of land and sea. We will examine cultural, psychological and ecological phenomena along Pacific shorelines, beginning with the Island Republic of Kiribati. Scientists have predicted that these South Pacific coral atolls will be uninhabitable by the year 2030, due to rising sea levels caused by climate change. Contrasting the experience of human time with geological processes, we reflect on humankind's intimate and continuous connection to the ocean - as we fathom our shared future.
