Film Premiere: Lament for the Land

I am very pleased, excited, and honoured to announce the film premiere of our new documentary, Attutauniujuk Nunami/Lament for the Land at the International Congress of Arctic Social Sciences Eight Conference (ICASS VIII). We will be premiering the film on Thursday, May 22nd, 2014 from 3:30-5:00pm in Room 7-158 on the University of Northern British Columbia campus.

This film weaves together the voices and wisdom of Labrador Inuit with stunning visual scenery to tell a powerful story of change, loss, and hope in the context of rapid climate change in the North.

This session will include an overview of research conducted in Nunatsiavut, Labrador on the connections among climate change, loss of livelihoods, culture, and identity, and mental wellbeing, followed by the premiere of Attaukauniujuk Nunami/Lament for the Land. After the film, there will be a Q&A and discussion with the myself and Inuit in the film.
