SILA And The Gatekeepers Of The Arctic: Film Screening & Talk

This documentary explores the Greenlandic concept of Sila, a term that encompasses weather, consciousness and the universe. Amidst the breathtaking landscape of Greenland, where climate change is most visible, two independent groups of Inuit subsistence hunters and a group of polar scientists, bear witness to the transforming environment. Their interwoven stories define the term sila in today’s globalized world. Join us a for a post screening conversation with director Corina Gamma.
