ELEVEN ARTS and NEW YORK – TOKYO will bring the Japanese documentary film BEAUTIFUL ISLANDS, directed and produced by KANA Tomoko, and executive produced by KORE-EDA Hirokazu (“Nobody Knows”, “Still Walking”), to Walter Reade Theater @ Lincoln Center.

BEAUTIFUL ISLANDS will set off an alarm bell for global warming. This movie looks at three beautiful islands, shaken by climate change: Tuvalu in the South Pacific, Venice in Italy, and Shishmaref in Alaska.

The islands all have different climates and cultures, but the people all love their native lands. The film, which took three years to shoot, focuses on their daily lives. It portrays festivals that foster ties among the people, traditional crafts which have been passed on for generations, and peaceful lives by the water. They are all disappearing by climate change.
