DVD of the Month
Come Up follows the relocation of some of the Carteret Islanders, a
peaceful community living on a remote island chain in the South Pacific
Ocean, and now, some of the world's first environmental refugees. When rising
seas threaten their survival, the islanders face a painful decision: they
must leave their beloved land in search of a new place to call home. The film
follows a group of young Carteret Islanders as they search for land in
Bougainville, an autonomous region of Papua New Guinea 50 miles across the
open ocean. The move will not be easy as Bougainville is recovering from a
10-year civil war"--Producers.
