When the Sea Swallows the Land
Island Garden City of Samal, Philippines
2021, Senior, Film
Living in a small island and one of the more than seven thousand islands in the Philippines, our eyes are awakened to the dilemmas confronting our planet’s waters, especially sea level rise. This inspired our team to raise awareness about the impacts of sea level rise on the local community. We believe that showing the adverse effects of climate change such as sea level rise is a powerful tool to make humans reflect on their crimes against the environment. After viewing our short documentary film, we want our viewers not to be scared but to be strong enough to commit themselves to the mission of stabilizing our climate. The Earth is getting warmer, causing the rise in sea levels to accelerate. As young filmmakers, we are happy to share this information to the community and to the world.
