Suspended Generation - The Kids of Kiribati

Short Film (Full Length) – 2018

This mini documentary looks beyond the bright smiles and blue waters of the Republic of Kiribati. Pelenise Alofa from the Kiribati Climate Action Network  speaks of the stark impact of climate change on the islands, and the vulnerability of its people to the elements. Suspended Generation shows a Kiribati people sustained by their environment. But that environment is quickly changing, with far-reaching adverse effects. The documentary balances hard-hitting realities with the innocent candour of local children. Suspended Generations debuted in 2018 on Radio New Zealand's former digital platform The Wireless.

We must build sea walls to keep us safe.
– Kourataake Ruetie, one of the kids from Kiribati
