As part of Earth Week, Caltech’s Movies that Matter will screen the film, Small Island, Big Song, which addresses the South Pacific and Indian Ocean island nations that are under the most immediate, urgent threat of being submerged by sea water as oceans rise, caused in part by climate change.

Movies That Matter is a series created by Caltech in response to the pandemic, when attendance at live performances was suspended by presenters across the country. The series focuses on documentary and dramatic films that address current scientific and civic issues, and always includes a Questions and Answer session where the audience can engage in conversation with the individuals involved in making the film and with the relevant Caltech experts. Beginning in 2023, the series became a ‘live-only’ presentation.
A free screening of this enchanting yet compelling film and performance, Small Island, Big Song, will be presented at:
- Caltech’s Beckman Auditorium, located near the center of campus, in Pasadena
- Tuesday, April 18, at 7:00 pm.
- Parking is free in Caltech structures after 5:00 pm.
- A Question & Answer session with director Tim Cole and producer Baobao Chen will follow the film.
