“start with sinking: 














                                                  

  I was raised in a city
  that could be swallowed
  by the sea
within
  the next century 


                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     start there.”

   What is it like to come of age on a man-made island threatened by the effects of climate change?




















“Isle of Mine” is a mixed media short documentary mixing 3-D animation from the gaming platform Minecraft and archival footage from the Wolfson Archives. It explores What it is  like to come of age on a man-made island threatened by the effects of climate change, as a group of Normandy Isle children explore their own future, by reconstructing an exact replica of their neighborhood on the gaming platform Minecraft. In this virtual world, the children rehearse future scenarios of climate change-induced disasters, in a telling re-enactment of their own trauma post Hurricane Irma. The mixed-media documentary “Isle of Mine” will provide a way for them to both express their feelings about the future, while imagining other possible solutions for their hometown.
