WFC Tuvalu: ThuleTuvalu

This Amazon Prime find is made by a Swiss director, but it’s about Greenland and Tuvalu, juxtaposing the effect of climate change on the two places.

It’s a very good good documentary, managing to tell most of the story through the voices of the affected people. No talking heads constantly intercutting the footage with serious voices, as is the norm for these things.

Instead it’s calm and contemplative and moving.

ThuleTuvalu. Matthias von Gunten. 2014. Tuvalu.


  • 8 parts watermelon
  • 2 parts coconut water
  • 1 part lime juice
  • 4 parts rum

Crush the watermelon with a potato masher. Shake all ingredients with ice and pour into a glass. Garnish with shredded coconut.

This is really from Tonga. And I added the rum to the recipe.
