Join us for Opening Night featuring The Last Ice!
The Last Ice
Fri. Sept. 11th – 7pm – 83 mins
Our choice of an opening night film quickly became apparent with The Last Ice, a story that truly inspires. This is a powerful documentary produced by National Geographic about the Inuit people in Northern Canada and Greenland fighting to preserve their ancestors’ way of life. Colonialism, global warming and industrial extraction of Arctic resources are threatening the future of the land, water and ice, and the Inuit’s lasting traditional culture. Younger generations look to the old for new meaning. The film’s subjects beautifully reflect on their own personal stories and histories, and what they want to see in their futures. The very recent reports of the polar ice shelf giving way make this film incredibly timely. Please connect with us together virtually for our Opening Night as we watch this powerful story, followed by a live Q&A with Director Scott Ressler.
*If you miss the live watch of this program on opening night, it will be available through the 15th.
