still / picture for Tide Of Change


Filmmaker Amie Batalibasi went back to visit family in the Solomon Islands, at a time when the village was affected by the extreme high tides due to climate change. TIDE OF CHANGE documents the stories of the people, interwoven with the events surrounding the loss of a loved one, as the sea rises around a community on the brink of inevitable change.
