Guardians of the Kingdom
Guardians of the Kingdom, a short film produced by Underwater Earth and Vulcan Productions, premiered at the 2019 EarthX Film Festival.

Narrated by the accomplished National Geographic Ocean Explorer Sylvia Earle, Guardians of the Kingdom provides viewers with an unparalleled submerged perspective of the South Pacific in a stunning 360 degree interactive experience. UN Ambassadors from
Tonga attended the event and held VR demonstrations in the EarthxFilm interactive area – bringing real life representation of a small island nation to the event’s attendees.
Along with meeting for the GOTK showcases, Ambassadors Tone and Vaea spoke at the EarthxOcean conference and discussed plans for renewable energy infrastructure with GridMarket as a cornerstone of the Island Resilience Forum.
