I confess that when I began watching these films and working on this trailer, I searched Wikipedia for maps of Micronesia to learn where these small island nations are. There’s an amazing amount of history out in the Pacific, peoples and cultures that go back thousands of years. For some of these nations, fortune shifted in profound ways due to geopolitical interests and policies of the U.S. I was woefully ignorant of most of this history. Fortunately there are talented documentary filmmakers doggedly pursuing and recounting these stories. And a terrific organization like Pacific Islanders in Communications making sure that these films are getting funded and getting on the air. Here is a small sample of the films about Micronesia funded through the good folks at PIC.
