Swanson Playcentre Film Night Fundraiser share

Saturday, July 14 AT 7:00 PM - Saturday, July 14 AT 9:30 PM

Join us for a fun night of fine wine & fabulous company. Mingle with local community & meet playcentre parent & filmmaker Briar March for a Q&A prior to presenting a feature documentary film 'There Once was an island'. Directed by Briar March this film gives a human face to the direct impacts of climate change in the Pacific, challenging audiences everywhere to consider their own relationship to the earth and the other people on it.
What if you had to leave your home forever? Takuu, a tiny atoll in Papua New Guinea, contains the last Polynesian culture of its kind. Facing escalating climate-related impacts, including a terrifying flood, community members Teloo, Endar, and Satty, take us on an intimate journey to the core of their lives and dreams. Will they relocate to war-ravaged Bougainville - becoming environmental refugees - or fight to stay? Two visiting scientists investigate on the island, leading audience and community to a greater understanding of climate change.
