Prior to the UN Climate Action Summit 2019 on 23 September in New York, the United Nations Information Service (UNIS) Vienna, in cooperation with the Permanent Mission of Switzerland to the United Nations (Vienna), this human world filmfestivaland Topkino, invites you to the Ciné-ONU Vienna screening of the movie “Anote's Ark”.
The Pacific island nation of Kiribati (population: 100,000) is one of the most remote places on the planet, seemingly farremoved  from  the  pressures  of modern  life.  Yet  it  is  one  of  the  first  countries  that  must  confront  imminent annihilation from sea-level rise. Set against the backdrop of international climate and human rights negotiations, President Anote Tong’s struggle to save his nation is intertwined with the extraordinary fate of Tiemeri, a young mother  of  six,  who  fights  to  migrate  her  family to New Zealand. At stake is the survival of Tiemeri’s family, the Kiribatipeople, and 4,000 years of Kiribati culture.
