Storyline

What does a beauty pageant in Suva, Fiji have to do with climate change? Quite a lot, as it turns out. 'Miss South Pacific: Beauty and the Sea' is a short documentary film about the 2009-2010 Miss South Pacific Pageant that brought contestants, or Queens, from all the major Pacific Island Nations to compete in a week long pageant for the crown of Miss South Pacific. Addressing the theme of Climate Change and its impact on Pacific Island countries, the Queens eloquently and passionately implore judges, spectators, and the world at large to reduce global carbon emission lest their island homes will be lost to rising seas. Is it too late to turn back the tide? Watch Miss South Pacific and see. Written by Anonymous

Sea level rise destroying low lying South Pacific Islands
12 August 2013 | by haenagirlSee all my reviews

Told through the voices of the Miss South Pacific pageant contestants, the story of sea level rise in low lying South Pacific islands is a warning to developed countries of things to come if we don't stop carbon emissions. South Pacific Islanders, whose majority lives a subsistence lifestyle dependent on land crops and ocean resources, are at the forefront of the battle against rising sea levels. Even though these Islanders are not to blame for the carbon emissions that are causing sea levels to rise, they are suffering the most from the impacts of global warming. From damaged crops and contaminated ground water due to salt water intrusion, to forced relocations of entire villages, the devastation has spared no low lying Pacific island. This is an important, contemporary story, and serves as a harbinger of the loss of land, food, and culture that will surely overcome us if we can't reverse climate change.
