An island nation reflects on their sacred connection to their mountains, which are at risk of being lost to logging. Few stories have been shared about this region, and yet it is vitally important to life, culture, and biodiversity.

Shot and directed by nine Solomon Island filmmakers from multiple indigenous communities around the country. Produced with support from Nia Tero Foundation.
