About this Event
Hidden Pacific is a pioneering film that profiles the Pacific Ocean’s protected and remote national wildlife refuge islands and marine national monuments. These breathtaking places will leave audiences with a deep felt appreciation for the beauty of nature untouched by civilization. The film also spotlights the critical role these marine monuments play in the face of threats such as rising sea levels, ocean acidification, overfishing, and plastics pollution.
Bringing to the public never-before-seen footage, Hidden Pacific focuses on three remarkable places: the Palmyra, Midway, and Rose Atolls. The storied histories of these atolls—from the World War II Pacific Theater to their present environmental recovery and ecological research initiatives—provide the platform from which the film explores a diversity of science and human-interest stories.
