Synopsis Journey into the heart of Polynesia to visit a drowning paradise at ground zero for the global-warming debate: the island country of Tuvalu, the world's fourth-smallest country. The coral atolls that residents have called home for 2000 years are being threatened by creeping tides, erosion, shifting storm patterns, and salt-water intrusion into their traditional crops. At the same time, a rising tide of Westernization is taking a toll on the atolls. Environmental problems are growing from increasing amounts of imports and trash; damage still lingers from the American presence here during World War II; overpopulation on the capital island is putting pressure on natural resources; changing diets are contributing to soaring diabetes rates; and a recent deal to license the country's .tv internet extension (note the address of this website) has led to unexpected consequences ... And now—pushed by fears of rising sea levels, and pulled by the allure of the modern lifestyle—some people in Tuvalu are starting to leave their islands behind, making a bid through a new immigration program to start over in New Zealand. Atlantis Approaching is laced with humor and local color, interwoven with scientists and statistics providing a global context for the issues of sustainability that the film raises. Ultimately this is a cautionary tale—because the fragile island environment serves a “canary in the coal mine” for what could be in store for us all on our own island, the Earth.
