Washington D.C. Premiere
Selections from the United Nations Association Traveling Film Festival
BELONGING (Canada / USA, 2008, 52 min.)
Washington, D.C. Premiere This scientific and spiritual journey into humanity’s footprint on the earth takes a close look at some Inuit communities in the Canadian Arctic. The film reveals that irresponsible abuse of fossil energies and polluting technologies around the world have many more consequences on people and the environment than climate change. Beyond global warming, there are countless reasons why we have no choice but to embrace a new ethic of respect for nature and to resolutely turn away from short-sighted environmental carelessness. Directed and produced by Gerard Ungerman and Audrey Brohy.
Introduced by Edward M. Barrows, Professor of Biology, Georgetown University and Director of the GU Center for the Environment. Discussion with Jasmina Bojic, Founder and Executive Director, United Nations Association Film Festival, and filmmaker Gerard Ungerman follows screening.
Shown as part of Selections from the United Nations Association Traveling Film Festival, along with GALAPAGOS EVOLVING and DISAPPEARING FROGS
