The Disappearing of Tuvalu: Trouble in Paradise




The film documents the earth's first sovereign nation faced with total destruction from the effects of global warming–the 20-square mile South Pacific island chain of Tuvalu. Observation, narration and citizen interviews paint a full portrait of an isolated human community facing gradual inundation on the front lines of a global environmental calamity.
