CFI invites you to the Opening Night of DocLands 2018 with the California premiere of Montreal-based photographer/ethnologist Matthieu Rytz’s exquisitely shot feature, Anote's Ark, that chronicles a real-time climate change story. Lovely and mournful, Anote’s Ark chronicles the peculiarities of a population whose all-too-imminent future will be strictly as refugees, their homeland only accessible to divers. Will the Herculean efforts of former president Anote Tong stop this catastrophe? Or will it simply warn the world of the lessons that Kiribati’s fate makes so very clear? Anote’s Ark had its world premiere at Sundance 2018.

Special Guests: Director Matthieu Rytz and Film Subject Anote Tong, former president of Kiribati

Preceded by WATER TOWN US 2017, 24mins Director Maya Craig.
