Less than a month ago, a delegation of Pacific Islanders embarked on a journey to visit Canada’s tar sands in Alberta. They followed the route of Kinder Morgan’s proposed export pipeline to the British Columbia Coast.

There is a lot at stake for Pacific Island Nations with climate change, rising sea levels and extreme climate events. This journey was undertaken to visit one of the dirtiest and most carbon intensive projects on the planet, the Canadian tar sands, and connect this megaproject with the realities faced on a daily basis – including the fight for water and clean air for future generations.

Below you can watch the 11-minute film produced by Zack Embree and 350.org documenting this experience. It is an incredible and heartfelt piece of storytelling about a planet-wide struggle against human-caused climate change and the fossil fuel industry. Take a look at the film and show it to people around you.
