Environmental Refugees Documentary :: Sun Comes Up
"This is one of the first stories of climate change refugees. It will not be the last."
The film "Sun Come Up" documents the relocation of the Carteret Islanders – a community living on a remote island chain 50 miles off the coast of Papua New Guinea.
The filmmakers' latest news is that Abigail E. Disney has joined the team as executive producer! Abigail is the producer of "Pray the Devil Back to Hell", a film that just screened in San Francisco last night - see my post of a few days ago.

The film is not yet completed. The latest news on the film's Facebook page is that the filmmakers hope to screen the film for the first time in NYC this spring.
