Once again you can see an impressive documentary in the atmospheric garden of the Peace Palace during the Just Peace Festival. This year the theme is climate change and the impact on people’s lives. The prize-winning documentary ‘Anote’s Ark is screened. Prior to the film, you can ask all your questions about climate change to various experts during an interactive talk show.
In Oceania, situated in one of the world’s remotest locations, the island nation of Kiribati faces serious jeopardy: the lives of people and animals are threatened by the rapidly rising sea levels caused by climate change. President Tong is engaged in a race against the clock to bring his people to safety.
The prize-winning film follows his struggle against the backdrop of the climate negotiations in Paris, alternating with the personal story of Tiemeri, mother of six, who is doing everything she can to ensure that her family will be able to emigrate to the safe shores of New Zealand.
Film & Conversation
Prior to the film, various experts will introduce the topic of climate change to you. What can be said with certainty about the risks of climate change? And what role will international law play in this? With, among others, Maarten van Aalst (director of the International Red Cross Climate Center) and Jeroen Vervliet (Director-Librarian of the Carnegie Foundation).
Ticket sales for this event are via the website of the Peace Palace.
