Kivalina, an Inupiat village located on a tiny barrier island off Arctic Alaska, is being swallowed by the ocean. With climate change, ice sheets that traditionally protected the island from crashing seas are fast melting, eroding this tiny piece of land. Disappearing ice also makes it difficult to hunt the seals, walruses, and bowhead whales on which the community depends for its survival. The village must move to safer ground, but the costs amount to hundreds of millions. With no other options, Kivalina has sued 24 major energy companies deemed responsible for global warming, to pay for the move. Things Fall Apart is Kivalina's story. The film received a Diamond Award of the 2012 California Film Awards
