I am Tuvalu TAPAC

Written and directed by Tavita Nielsen-Mamea 'Au Ko Tuvalu' takes the audience to Tuvalu, the homeland of the world's first climate change refugees, now on its final day of evacuations...

Sitting just metres above sea level, the rising seas are dangerously lapping at the door step of three siblings, who must pack up their lives and flee to "Niu Sila" Aotearoa.

Although Maleko and Lifa try to look to the future and their new lives, Fetau finds it hard to say goodbye...

Au Ko Tuvalu follows a family watching their history, culture, and beloved homeland swept away in front of their eyes.
