A Kingdom Goes Solar

A KINGDOM GOES SOLAR

Nuku'alofa, Tonga

A documentary short about the transformative power of solar technology in the Kingdom of Tonga, an island nation heavily reliant on fossil fuels and foreign aid. These images were shot while living in Nuku'alofa, Tonga working on the film.

There I found a culture rich with tradition and religion, a landscape that varied from coast to coast and light dense with burning fires, a family of people that were equally inquisitive and welcoming.
