Trailer for There Once was an Island: Te Henua e Nnoho

This is a trailer for the climate change documentary "There Once was an Island: Te Henua e Nnoho". Four years in the making, this film is the story of a Pacific Island community in Papua New Guinea – their unique way of life and their fight to preserve what really matters in the face of climate change, including a terrifying flood.

Takuu atoll is an idyllic home to articulate, educated people who maintain a 1200 year-old culture and language with pride - but all is not well in paradise. Takuu is disintegrating and when two scientists arrive to investigate, the people realise their attempts to preserve the atoll are currently making the situation worse.

We follow Satty, Endar, Telo and their families as they must decide what matters most – body or soul. As a huge flood rips through the island, destroying homes and gardens, each family struggles with the reality of the atoll’s situation. With limited communication or support, can they justify staying and risking physical safety to maintain all that makes them who they are, or must they become environmental refugees, leaving for a very different life in neighbouring Bougainville, still rife with violence after a 10-year civil conflict?

Ultimately “There Once was an Island” is about what makes us who we are and what we all stand to lose as climate change unfolds.
