Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner is a poet from Marshall Islands. I ran into this young talented artist via our London assistant Linda Kwon, who saw Kathy perform at a Poetry Parnassus event and was deeply moved by her poems. Linda insisted that I work with Kathy and make a video or two while I was in London. So we did two. This is the first one.

This piece "Tell Them" focuses on climate change, a pressing threat for many low lying Pacific Island nations, including her own.
