"Anote's Ark" - screening and panel discussion

2018-11-16 Anotes Ark.jpg

What happens when your nation is swallowed by the sea? This moving documentary from Matthieu Rytz explores what it takes to migrate an entire nation with dignity.

Following its world premiere earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, the Science Museum and Royal Society present the English premiere of 'Anote’s Ark', the very first feature film to be shot in the Republic of Kiribati.

This moving documentary follows the country’s former president, Anote Tong, on his journey through international halls of power leading up to the UN Climate Change Conference.


The screening is followed by a panel discussion exploring the subject of geoengineering—deliberate large-scale intervention in the Earth’s climate system, in order to moderate global warming.

Helen will be chairing the debate and will be joined by:

  • Professor Joanna Haigh, Royal Society Fellow

  • Dr Jack Stilgoe, Senior Lecturer in Social Studies of Science at UCL

  • Dr Naomi Vaughan of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research

  • Oliver Morton, science writer, author and briefings editor for The Economist

Film and discussion - at the Science Museum, London.
