A past resident of Arcata and Shelter Cove, Michael Kew is an editorial freelance writer who first became involved in magazine publishing when he was 12. Kew’s work has been featured extensively worldwide in magazines, newspapers, websites, commercials, and books, including 2012’s “Crossings,” his collection of travel writing. In May 2016, “Crossings” was redesigned and reissued in softcover, hardcover, and ebook formats. Kew’s second travel book is slated for 2018. He will publish his first photo book in late 2016. He lives on the southern Oregon coast.
Two places at the edge of our planet are making headlines due to climate change: Thule, Greenland, because of record ice melts there; and Tuvalu, because this remote Pacific island nation is one of the first countries on the verge of sinking as a result of rising sea levels. Whereas for us the warming of the planet occurs almost solely in the media, it is changing the entire existence for the inhabitants of Thule and Tuvalu. The film portrays how they are forced to abandon their traditional way of life as they move towards an unknown future.
