"Sun Come Up" Screening at Camden Friends Meeting
Sun Come Up is an Academy Award nominated film that shows the human face of sea level rise. The film follows the Carteret Islanders, a community living on a remote island chain in the South Pacific Ocean who are forced to eave their ancestral land due to rising seas and salt water intrusion. A group of Carteret youth take a journey 50 miles across the open ocean to search for land in the war-torn Bougainville in order to relocate their community, some of the world's first climate refuges.
The film is approx. 40 minutes long and will be followed by discussion of the film, sea level rise in Delaware and climate change more generally.
This special screening is part of Quaker Friends Meeting's monthly Monday film series as well as the 2nd annual Delaware Sea Level Rise Awarness Week, sponsored by our chapter and 21 other organizations to raise awareness about the threat sea level rise poses to our environment, infrastructure, economy and people in the first state.
