Film People of a Feather 2012-03-03 15:00:00
Description

Join director, producer and cinematographer Joel Heath for a Q&A following the 7:00 screening Saturday, March 3rd. The film has been produced on a not-for-profit basis, with proceeds going to the charitable Arctic Eider Society.
PEOPLE OF A FEATHER
Director: Joel Heath Canada, 2011, 90 min; English Inuktitut with subtitles
WINNER! Environmental Film Audience Award – Vancouver International Film Festival
Utilizing astonishing time-lapse photography captured over seven years, Joel Heath illustrates how a traditional way of life is being ravaged by environmental change. On Hudson Bay's isolated Belcher Islands, the community of Sanikiluaq has long relied upon the eider duck and their down feathers (the warmest in the world) for survival. However, the runoff from nearby hydroelectric dams has resulted in an increasingly volatile ecosystem and triggered massive die-offs in the ducks. Feather certifies that ecologist-turned-documentarian Heath is a born filmmaker. –Vancouver International Film Festival
