Description

Bangladesh is one of the most susceptible countries in the world to climate change. The rising sea levels are contributing to river and coastal erosion while higher atmospheric temperature and intense storms are causing widespread floods. One island that is severely affected by flooding is East Holdibari in North West Bangladesh. However, Holdibari's children are fighting back, and have created an action plan to prepare for future floods. This film is an entry to a micro-documentary film contest 'Vulnerability Exposed: Social Dimensions of Climate Change.
