There once was an island was directed by Brian March. When I first heard of the film, I expected a very interesting documentary of an island, which shows the problems and the everyday life of the islanders. The documentary shows a small island, called Takuu, which is flooded by waves. The people have to leave their houses, because of the water and have to be afraid, how it goes on. The island is a victim of the global warming and the islanders want to get help from the government. The islanders, who show their life and their problems, are very helpless. They need help and support from others to protect their island. It is sad to see them thinking about their future, which isn't clear. You make thoughts on your own, what you would do and also about your problems. All problems you have are nothing compared to their really big problems. They don't know what will happen with their home, where to go and what to do. You are feeling with them. All in all you can say that the documentary is really touching and it makes some problems of the global warming more clearly.
