Synopsis

One Storm Away (2018) A short film with the focus on how livelihoods in the Caribbean are under threat due to climate change. This introduces reality of "living one storm away", where businesses, households and individuals are literally one high energy event away from watching the lives of their loved one’s change (often for the worst) before their eyes as a result of natural hazards and their associated impacts. One major component of Caribbean existence is tourism. Whether directly or indirectly, people of the Caribbean benefit from tourism. Consequently, “One Storm Away” looks at the effects of climate change on tourism and looks at the impact that climate change has had and can potentially have, on the livelihoods of people in the region.

Director's Statement

The lived experiences and stories of Caribbean people are quite unique … livelihoods, culture, habitats and environmental impacts vary from island to island… We are here to share those stories and celebrate Caribbean sustainability from an island perspective.
