What does a beauty pageant in Suva, Fiji have to do with climate change? Quite a lot, as it turns out. ‘Miss South Pacific: Beauty and the Sea’ is a short documentary film about the 2009-2010 Miss South Pacific Pageant that brought contestants, or Queens, to Suva, Fiji to address issues of rising sea levels, and the salt water intrusion that is destroying their land, crops, and drinking water, and in some cases has resulted in the relocation of entire villages from their native homes. Is it too late to turn back the tide? Watch Miss South Pacific and find out what these beautiful and intelligent women are saying about the issues.
