Lords of the ArcticJean Lemire Caroline Underwood | 2003 | 52 min 

This documentary by award-winning filmmaker Caroline Underwood focuses on Northern wildlife and its close and tragic relation to climate change, which affects all of the Arctic’s fragile ecosystems. The example of the polar bear, studied by biologists for the past 20 years, is revealing. Scientists are also concerned about the precarious situation of bowhead whales and belugas, not to mention seals, walruses and many species of birds. Are the lords of the Arctic in danger of ending their reign over their kingdom of ice and snow?

The short film Stories from Our Land 1.5: If You Want to Get Married… You Have to Learn How to Build an Igloo! by Allen Auksaq will be presented as well.
