On Feb. 10, at 7:00 P.M., Thule, Tuvalu, the first film in the University of Mississippi’s Spring Environmental Film Series will be showing at the Overby Center for Southern Journalism and Politics.
Two places on separate ends of the planet take on the full force of climate change. Like opposite sides of the same coin, Thule is facing rapidly melting ice, while Tuvalu faces steadily rising sea levels. Both locations see very different effects of Earth’s rising temperatures, yet both communities experience the full weight of climate change destroying their homes, livelihoods, and means of survival. The film Thule, Tuvalu challenges audiences to engage with the real and present threat of climate change as it portrays the desolation of these two struggling communities.
The Environmental Film Series is sponsored by the Environmental Studies Minor, Southern Documentary Project, Office of Sustainability, Strawberry Plains Audubon Center and the Ole Miss Birders.
The Environmental Film Series is a celebration of sustainable works and ideas put to film.
