The Quickening

In 29 years Uncle Paul and Uncle Pabai, their families and communities will be climate refugees. Their homelands Boigu and Saibai in the Torres Strait sit at 1.6m above sea level at the highest point and they face not only the loss of their lands to climate impacts, but their ways of being, culture and identity. 

The Quickening is a feature-length documentary, that follows a landmark court case led by Uncle Paul and Pabai, but told by their communities, against the Australian Government demanding immediate action on climate change to save their homelands from sinking. 

From award winning film-maker Maya Newell, currently in production.
