Water will erase Newtok, Alaska. Built on land that was once frozen year-round, the foundation of the tiny Yup’ik village has been sinking and eroding for decades. The 360 Yup’ik residents are America’s first climate refugees. To keep their culture and community intact, they must relocate their entire village to solid ground across the river while facing the indifference of a federal government that refuses to formally recognize climate change. It is a lyrical, verité portrait of a people looking for justice in the face of climate disaster.
