INUIT KNOWLEDGE AND CLIMATE CHANGE (Canada, 2010, 55 min.)

United States Premiere Nunavut-based director Zacharias Kunuk, who also directed Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner, and researcher and filmmaker Ian Mauro have teamed up with Inuit communities to document their knowledge and experience regarding climate change. This new documentary, the world’s first Inuktitut language film on the topic, takes the viewer “on the land” with elders and hunters to explore the social and ecological impacts of a warming Arctic. This unforgettable film helps us appreciate Inuit culture and expertise regarding environmental change and indigenous ways of adapting to it. In the Inuktitut language with English subtitles. Directed by Zacharias Kunut and Ian Mauro. Produced by Zacharias Kunut and Stephane Rituit.

Discussion with filmmaker Ian Mauro and, via Skype-video, with filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk, follows screening.
