Atlantis Approaching: Journey to Tuvalu, the world's fourth-smallest country, where creeping tides, shifting storm patterns and environmental problems are taking their toll on this fragile paradise. World War II damage lingers, overpopulation is putting pressure on natural resources and changing diets are resulting in soaring diabetes rates. Using humour and local colour, the filmmakers of Atlantis Approaching present a cautionary tale for what could be in store for us all.
