Join us on Video & Film e-stream for an online screening of Zacharie Kunuk‘s Inuit knowledge and climate change (2010), streaming from Wednesday August 4 to Tuesday August 17, 2021.
Zacharias Kunuk and his team at Isuma Productions have partnered with researcher Ian Mauro, PhD, University of Victoria, to document and communicate Inuit knowledge about climate change in Nunavut. This community-based video research and film-making project highlights the important contribution of the Inuit regarding the impacts of climate change and the associated adaptation strategies.
Inuit knowledge and climate change is presented here as one of six films in Part Four | Frameworks for otherness (ethnography, human rights, class and race), the finale of four programs in the online series Me, You, and Everyone We Know: Interrelationality, Alterity, Globalization programmed by Irmgard Emmelhainz for Video & Film e-stream. The series will take place in four thematic parts from June 23 to August 18, 2021. Each part will include a two-week group screening and live discussion. The series ends with a rehearsal of all films from parts one through four on August 18.
