The filming of Lowland Kids began as an adventure. A trip down to Isle de Jean Charles to experience this magical place before it’s gone. I had heard many stories about this sinking island and America’s first climate refugees – many of which pitted the islanders against each other – those who want to stay vs. those who want to go. But when our small crew arrived on Isle de Jean Charles we discovered a different truth: No one here wants to leave. Every family on the island would spend the rest of their life here, if they had the choice.
