SATURDAY OCTOBER 17 (SESSION 7)

Director: Scott Ressler
Producers: Enric Sala, Neil Gelinas, Scott Ressler

Description:

For centuries, Inuit in the Arctic have lived on and around the frozen ocean. Now, as the sea ice between Canada and Greenland melts, the outside world sees unprecedented opportunity. Oil and gas deposits, faster shipping routes, tourism, and fishing all provide financial incentive to exploit the newly opened waters. But for more than 100,000 Inuit, an entire way of life is at stake. Development here threatens to upset the balance between their communities, land, and wildlife. Inuit in Canada and Greenland are once again coming together, fighting to protect what will remain of their world. The question is, will the world listen?
