People of a Feather

Heath, Joel; Kanopy (Firm)
Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
Featuring stunning footage from seven winters in the Arctic, People of a Feather takes us through time into the world of the Inuit in the northern reaches of Canada. Connecting past, present and future is the Inuit's unique relationship with the eider duck. Eider down, the warmest feather in the world, allows both Inuit and bird to survive harsh Arctic winters. Changing sea ice and ocean currents disrupted by the massive hydroelectric dams powering eastern North America bring modern challenges to these Arctic residents. Inspired by Inuit ingenuity and the amazing properties of the eider feather, the film is a call to action to implement energy solutions that work with nature. "Lyrical...stunning." -The New York Times "People of the Feather is more than a nature or anthropological film. It's also a call to action to save the millennial long relationship these Inuit people have with their land, water and seasons." -Cinesource Magazine
