Hungry Tides the new feature length film by Tom Zubrycki is a portrait of Sydney based activist Maria Simon as she works to draw attention to the plight of her Pacific Island Nation Kirbati, which is already being inudated by rising tides .

The film follows Maria from a small Sydney high school tothe 2009 Copenhagen Climate Change Conference and a year later to Cancun.

The Hungry Tides documents an ongoing struggle that is both more complex and potentially more devestating in its outcome.
