Au Ko Tuvalu
Waves are lapping dangerously at the shores of the Pacific Island home to the world’s first environmental refugees: Tuvalu.
Sitting just metres above the water that will soon swallow their home, three siblings hastily pack up their belongings as they prepare to flee to Aotearoa.
While Lifa and Maleko are excited, practising their English and getting ready to begin a new life in New Zealand, their sister, Fetau, doesn’t want to say goodbye.
Following a family watching their history disappear before their eyes, Au Ko Tuvalu showcases the humour, pain and hope that comes from their unfathomable – yet imminent – situation.
