Overseas with David Conover: Greenland

Posted on November 29, 2016 in What We’re Watching

A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

The Greenland that Alan Lewis, Mark Frevert, and I saw this past summer is very different than the Greenland I experienced more than 20 years ago. Temperatures are at an all-time high, glaciers are melting before our eyes, and fishermen’s hauls yield noticeable smaller catches. I have the chance to listen to Greenlandic climate ethnographer Natuk Olsen. Her insight into the destabilizing evidence of climate change in her culture’s day-to-day life conveys the realities behind the abstractions. Yes, the climate is changing fast and humans are causing it.
