Directed by nine Indigenous Solomon Island filmmakers, this is both a love letter and lament for the eponymous traditional lands.

“We must look after our last places like this.” The Sky Aelans are the mountainous regions that hold spiritual and cultural significance to Solomon Island communities; in this documentary, they are captured in sweeping, resplendent sequences alongside footage and voiceovers from those who reside there. Sky Aelans is a poetic, captivating chronicle of an unspoilt, rarely seen part of the world and a call-to-action to ensure its longevity.
