Artosphere Festival Film: One Word

Wednesday May 11th │ Depart 2pm

The Walton Arts Center kicks off its annual Artosphere Festival in May, and BTV will host one of Walton Arts Center Artosphere Festival’s films, One Word. This exciting, vivid, highly charged documentary is about the impacts of climate change on the Republic of the Marshall Islands. At less than six feet above sea level, the islands are forecasted to be uninhabitable by 2050. The movie was made with the participation of the Marshallese people, developed and created through film workshops that ran over a period of nine months. The filmmakers trusted the Marshallese people to be the only reliable experts when it comes to the story of their land.
