Climate Action Film Festival

A poetic expedition between two islanders, one from the Marshall Islands and one from Kalaallit Nunaat (Greenland), connecting their realities of melting glaciers and rising sea levels. Kathy Jetñil-Kijiner and Aka Niviâna use their poetry to showcase the linkages between their homelands in the face of climate change. Through this video we get a glimpse at how large, and yet so small and interdependent our world is.

Dan Lin is a professional photographer and photojournalist. Dan entered into the film world as a response to the complexity of issues arising from the Pacific, with a desire to provide a more visceral experience for broader audiences. He is primarily interested in telling stories of indigenous peoples and their connection to the land and sea.

There’s more to the story!
