Event Details

Event Date: November 23rd, 2012
Venue: Bottega
Event Time: 6:00 pm
Cost: Free (donations welcomed)

Reel change sustainability film festival is coming to Kelowna and Tribehouse is honoured to be partnering with the Fresh Outlook Foundation to bring to Bottega, the impacting film PEOPLE OF A FEATHER (A film about survival in a changing Canadian Arctic).

Movie Synopsis:

Featuring groundbreaking footage from seven winters in the Arctic, People of a Feather takes you through time into the world of Inuit on the Belcher Islands in Hudson Bay. Connecting past present and future is a unique cultural relationship with the eider duck. 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.
