There Once Was an Island - Te Henua E Nnoho

Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.

"There Once Was an Island" tells the story of a Pacific Island community fighting to preserve what really matters in the face of rising tides. Takuu Atoll is an idyllic home to people who maintain a 1,200-year-old culture and language. The island is disintegrating and when scientists arrive to investigate, residents realize that their attempts to preserve the coral atoll are making the situation worse. With limited means of communication or outside support, the people of Takuu must make the heart-wrenching decision of whether to risk their safety and remain on their beloved island, or become environmental refugees and begin new lives in neighboring, but foreign, Papua New Guinea.
