Sun Come Up is an Academy Award® nominated film that shows the human face of climate change. The film provokes discussion about climate change, displacement, and the rights of vulnerable communities around the globe.
Summary of the film:
Documentary film following the relocation of some of the Carteret Islanders, a peaceful community living on a remote island chain in the South Pacific Ocean, and now, some of the world’s first environmental refugees. When rising seas threaten their survival, the islanders face a painful decision: they must leave their beloved land in search of a new place to call home. The film follows a group of young Carteret Islanders as they search for land in Bougainville, an autonomous region of Papua New Guinea 50 miles across the open ocean. The move will not be easy as Bougainville is recovering from a 10-year civil war.
The film is available in the HKUL at http://library.hku.hk/record=b4715606.
