Event Description

Followed by Q & A with director Gina Abatemarco

The Arctic, for centuries a frozen and inaccessible landscape, today is anything but. 130 miles above the Arctic Circle, the tiny island of Kivalina, Alaska lies dead center in the middle of the Arctic's serious environmental, cultural, and industrial crossroad. There are industries looking to exploit, transportation interests looking to travel through, scientists looking to understand, environmentalists looking to save - and then there are the native people looking only to survive and live there as their ancestors have for centuries. These voices receive the least attention of all. These are the voices of Kivalina People, a feature documentary film that explores the lives of the Inupiat Eskimo people of Kivalina, whose island is disappearing into the warming of the modern Arctic.
