Beam Classroom, Visual Arts Center
This award winning film documents the world of the Inuit and Eider ducks on the Belcher Islands. The contrasts between traditional and modern life are explored, as Inuit and Eiders face the challenges of changing sea ice and ocean currents, disrupted by the giant hydro dams powering North America.
Film producer and leading Canadian ecologist, Joel Heath, will answer questions about the making of the film and his research on the effects of climate change on Arctic Sea ecology.
Free and open to the public.
Sponsored by Lectures and Concerts, the Department of Biology, and the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum.
