Duration
80’
Director
Briar March

Four years in the making, There Was Once an Island: Te Henua e Nnoho is the story of a Pacific Island community in Papua New Guinea – their unique way of life and their fight to preserve what really matters in the face of climate change. We follow Satty, Endar, Teloo and their families as they must decide what matters most – body or soul. As a huge flood rips through the island, destroying homes and gardens, each family struggles with the reality of the atoll’s situation. With limited communication or support, can they justify staying and risking physical safety to maintain all that makes them who they are, or must they become environmental refugees, leaving for a very different life in neighboring Bougainville, still rife with violence after a 10-year civil conflict?
