On 23 September 2014, 26 year old poet Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner, from the Marshall Islands, addressed the Opening Ceremony of the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Summit. Kathy was selected from among over 500 civil society candidates in an open, global nomination process conducted by the UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service.

In collaboration with The Global Brain Project, Cutters, Jenna Pool, and Avaaz, Refilmery co-directed the visual aggregate that played alongside Kathy’s live performance.
