Wed Apr 4 at 7:00 PM
Thu Apr 5 at 9:00 PM
DIR. JOEL HEATH | 2011 | CANADA | 90 MIN
A breathtaking journey into the remote world of the Belcher Islands Inuit people. Connecting past, present and future is a unique cultural relationship with the eider duck.

But both the Inuit and eiders are struggling to adapt to changing sea dynamics as seasons and ocean currents are reversed by runoff from hydroelectric dams that power North America’s entire eastern seaboard.
