Kiribati documentary (Anote’s Ark) & panel – at the Science Museum
We will go for an optional dinner at Ognisko (http://www.ogniskorestaurant.co.uk/, 55 Exhibition Road) at 5:45pm, ahead of the following event: Following its world premiere earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, the Science Museum and Royal Society present the English premiere of ‘Anote’s Ark’, the very first feature film to be shot in the Republic of Kiribati. An island nation in the Pacific Ocean, Kiribati is destined to disappear within decades as a result of rising sea levels – granting its citizens the unfortunate title of first climate refugees in history. This moving documentary follows the country’s former president, Anote Tong, on his journey through international halls of power leading up to the UN Climate Change Conference. The screening is followed by a panel discussion exploring the subject of geoengineering – deliberate large-scale intervention in the Earth’s climate system, in order to moderate global warming: Could geoengineering be the answer to the impending climate crisis? You will need to buy your ticket with the Science Museum (https://my.sciencemuseum.org.uk/single/SYOS.aspx?p=178453) before RSVPing. The event starts at 7:30pm, but the IMAX Theatre is at the back of the museum, so please allow at least 10 minutes to reach it from the entrance. When you RSVP you will need to provide your booking confirmation number (from your confirmation e-mail) and let me know whether or not you will be joining us for dinner. Please do this by making a note in the RSVP question box. This is essential for every RSVP. If you forget to do it at the time, you can add the missing details at any time by re-RSVPing and entering them when you do. In the days immediately prior, I’ll circulate details of arrangements to meet.
