AIFF presents ARCTIC DEFENDERS

Cool down in August with a documentary set in the Arctic North. Join us on August 18th at 7 p.m. in the Robbins Library Community Room for a screen of Arctic Defenders.

ARCTIC DEFENDERS (90 MIN)
John Walker, Director | Canada | 2013 | Doc | U.S. PREMIERE

Set in the dramatic and alluring landscape of the north, Arctic Defenders tells the remarkable story that began in 1968 with a radical Inuit movement that changed the political landscape forever. It led to the largest land claim in western civilization, orchestrated by young visionary Inuits with a dream – the governance of their territory – the creation of Nunavut. The story reveals Canada’s misguided attempts at sovereignty in the north and finds hope and inspiration from determined people who changed the rules of the game.
