I love this film! It is a stunning documentary that tackles the important issues about climate change and features young people talking with other young people about their concerns. This film really resonates with me, because I am an avid supporter of protecting the environment, especially our oceans. The primarily focuses of the film is on rising sea levels due to climate change caused by pollution, carbon emissions and nuclear waste. The film excels at educating its target audience. Most of the spokespersons are young adults whose islands are going to disappear at the end of this century. It is extremely powerful to hear firsthand from these islanders as they tell stories about their beloved islands. Their pleas to governments and countries worldwide to stop polluting and using nuclear technology is especially touching. It really opened my eyes to how bad our environment has become. Some of these adolescents will not have a home in the future. That really points out how dire the situation is. Although the film can be a bit depressing, I love focus on spreading awareness about climate change. It is crucial for Millennials, because they have the power to change the outcome of our planet. Young adults will enjoy seeing their peers traveling around the world and speaking out. I give this 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 to 18.
