fire in the water, fire in the sky

Directed by Mīria George

Tia has always survived – but in turn she has forgotten how to dance. Sisters Tia and Ina are far from home. Tia is steadfast and protective of free-spirited Ina. A story of migration, fire in the water, fire in the sky is a statement inspired by climate change.
