Sky Aelans

Sky Aelans was filmed by a cohort of first-time filmmakers from the Solomon Islands and developed in partnership with the Indigenous communities who live in the high mountain forests above 400m – known locally as the “Sky Aelans” or Sky Islands. Decades of logging have drastically changed the landscape and lifestyle of those who call the Solomon Islands home. Now, the last untouched forest of the country is at risk of being lost. These Solomon Islanders are the last guardians of these sacred spaces. This film is a reflection and celebration of the vital bond that these communities have with their Sky Islands.
