Kivalina by Gina Abatemarco, 64 min / 2016

More than a hundred miles above the Arctic Circle, an Inupiaq Eskimo community is living on an island that is fast disappearing into the ocean. With no resources to move and only a precarious sea wall to protect them, the community struggles to maintain its way of life within a landscape and a system that is failing them. Weaving together observational storytelling and cinematic imagery, “Kivalina” offers an evocative and rare portrait of one of the last surviving Arctic communities
