Internationally renowned documentary maker, Tom Zubrycki in conversation with UTS Climate Change expert Dr Ian McGregor for a Q&A following a screening of Tom’s acclaimed climate change documentary, The Hungry Tide.

On the front lines of the climate emergency, Kiribati is gravely threatened by sea level rise that threatens the displacement of its 105,000 residents. The film follows Maria from a small Sydney high school to the world stage as she alerts the world to her sinking homeland and rises to overcome many personal and political challenges.
