Wildscreen 2012: People of a Feather
90 mins, Canada Please note: this was screened in Oct 2012
A unique cultural relationship between Inuit of the Belcher Islands and the eider duck connects past, present and future. Eider down, the warmest feather in the world, allows both Inuit and bird to survive harsh Arctic winters.
Recreations of traditional life are juxtaposed with modern life in Sanikiluaq, as both people and eiders face the challenges posed by changing sea ice and ocean currents disrupted by the massive hydroelectric dams powering eastern North America. The eyes of a remote subsistence culture challenge the world to find energy solutions that work with the seasons of our hydrological cycle.
