Editorial Reviews

Tuvalu has the dubious distinction of being the world’s most endangered country, a Pacific Island paradise suffering from the effects of rising sea levels caused by global-warming.

Does Tuvalu have a future? Is the rest of the world powerless to help the first victims of a global affliction? In Paradise Drowned we follow a nation’s plight against the sea.

For at least 2000 years Tuvalu has managed to sustain a Polynesian population, but it is now heavily reliant on imported food and water supplies. This is their story told in the first person through the eyes of a young Tuvalu woman, Mileta Falavi. This film is her story as she follows her nation’s plight against the sea and the changing weather patterns.

Does her nation have a future? Is the rest of the world powerless to help the first victims of our global affliction?
