Suisse-Tuvalu 2014 | vo anglaise et inukitut stf+all | 96' | Documentaire de: Matthias von Gunten Two places at the edge of our planet are making headlines due to climate change: Thule, Greenland, because of record ice melts there; and Tuvalu, because this remote pacific island nation is one of the first countries on the verge of sinking as a result of rising sea levels. Whereas for us the warming of the planet occurs almost solely in the media, it is changing the entire existence for the inhabitants of Thule and Tuvalu. The film portrays how they are forced to abandon their traditional way of life as they move towards an unknown future.
« A handsomely lensed, fascinating portrait of two communities that exist on opposite sides of the planet, yet are unexpectedly connected: Melting ice in northern Greenland will literally drown the island nation of Tuvalu in the South Pacific. ThuleTuvalu should be remembered as one of the earliest to sideline impersonal statistics and talking-head scientists, focusing instead on the communities directly affected. » (Variety)
« An eloquent look at present-tense climate realities. » (The Hollywood Reporter)
« Matthias von Gunten beobachtet den Alltag der Menschen aus nächster Nähe, fängt ihre Angst, Wut und Ohnmacht ein. Dann springt er wieder in die Totale, um mit seinen ruhigen, präzise choreografierten Landschaftsaufnahmen die Folgen des Klimawandels zu beobachten. » (Deutschlandradio Kultur)
