U of W - Eckhardt~Gramatte Hall
The University of Winnipeg's office of Indigenous Affairs and the Prairie Climate Centre are pleased to host a free public screening of Qapirangajuq: Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change.
The co-directors of the film, Zacharias Kunuk and Ian Mauro, will be in attendance to introduce the film and participate in Q and A.
This documentary, the world's first Inuktitut language film on the topic, takes the viewer "on the land" with elders and hunters to explore the social and ecological impacts of a warming Arctic.
It was released in 2010 and has since played major international film festivals and venues worldwide, including the United Nations, Berlin International Film Festival, ImagineNative, Smithsonian Institution and National Geographic.
Zacharias Kunuk is the acclaimed Inuk director behind Atanarjuat the Fast Runner - which is considered the most important Canadian film ever made - as well as numerous other documentary and feature film projects.
Ian Mauro is a professor, researcher and filmmaker at the University of Winnipeg and a director of the Prairie Climate Centre.
