Screening: PEOPLE OF A FEATHER Nov. 8-14 1:00, 3:00, 5:15, 7:15, 9:30

See PEOPLE OF A FEATHER, an award-winning feature documentary, and meet director/ ecologist Joel Heath. This film takes viewers into the world of the Inuit on the Belcher Islands in Canada's Hudson Bay. For generations, the Inuit have depended on their unique relationship with the eider duck, whose down feathers allow them to survive the harsh Arctic winters. Recently however, their traditional way of life has been thrown into jeopardy, as massive hydroelectric dams powering New York and eastern North America have disrupted the sea ice and ocean currents essential for the survival of the eider ducks. The film serves as a powerful call to action, encouraging viewers to reflect on how their energy consumption can affect communities and ecosystems around the world.

Heath, Ph.D. while in New York, aims to turn Knowledge shared through the film into Action on these issues, through his partnership with the Waterkeeper Alliance. Please visit their indiegogo page: or contact the director:

    Change the timing of the release of fresh water from hydroelectric dams and we can honor Mother Nature, perhaps correct some of the chaotic changes in the Arctic.
