Short Abstract

Moana Rua: the Rising of the Sea is the film version of an European Consortium for Pacific Studies produced live stage drama written, produced and performed by Pacific Islanders, in which the islanders take ownership of the climate change debate, and assume the role of ‘climate change warriors’ whose artistic expressions mediate their own perspectives on what is happening. Some proposals for deepened European-Pacific collaboration in scholarship and art are presented for the challenges posed by our era of accelerating climate change, and some comparison is made with the anthropology of other regions.

The film will be discussed as part of a plenary session at 17:00.
