Two indigenous poets, Kathy Jetñil-Kijiner from the Marshall Islands and Aka Niviâna from Kalaallit Nunaat (Greenland) embark on a poetry expedition to make the connection between the melting glaciers and the rising sea level, and to show the world what's at stake. This is the story of how the short film Rise: From One Island to Another, came to be.
