WORLD PREMIERE As the effects of climate change become ever more apparent throughout the world, the Yup'ik people and their lands on the western outskirts of Alaska face a much more imminent threat. In the town of Newtok, years of rising temperatures have eroded the frozen foundation of the area. With their homes and way of life hanging in the balance, the town's residents weigh the prospect of relocating the community or abandoning their traditional lands forever.  - Brandon Harrison

The November 13th screening will be followed by a Q&A with Directors Andrew Burton and Michael Kirby Smith, Executive Producer Marie Meade and film subject Della Carl and the November 16th with Directors Andrew Burton and Michael Kirby Smith.
