Director: Matthias von Gunten
96 minutes
North American Indian, English, Inuktitut; Turkish and English subtitles

Two incredible places, where man has learned to live in harmony with the environment, are subjected to the consequences of a change that depends on man himself. On one side in North of Greenland, Thule is surrounded by ice, while on the other side lays Tuvalu, a small island state in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. In Thule ice melting threatens the survival of the population compromising the traditional livelihoods of families. In parallel, Tuvalu island must deal with the rising sea levels that destroy beaches and hauls the soil with salt water. In short, two distant lands linked by the same tragic fate.

The threat of global warming and climate changes creates a connection between the history of these locations and their inhabitants. An indication of how these two realities face every day the tangible consequences of a question much discussed today, but rarely with a comprehensive knowledge, ThuleTuvalu (2014) depicts how everything we do to the planet has a price.
