THE ARCTIC IS shows an Inuit subsistence hunter’s visit to the 2015 COP21 Climate Conference in Paris, France, and documents his message to the world. >>

“The Arctic Is consists of a short film by Mel Chin (L’Arctique est Paris) and a planned website that deliver a message from Inuit hunter and leader Jens Danielsen. Danielsen tells us of the startling changes he is witnessing in Greenland and lets us know these changes are already making their way throughout the world. Climate change is not some far away phenomenon. The Arctic drives the climate of the world. The Arctic is Paris. The Arctic is Des Moines. The Arctic is Lagos. The Arctic is Syria.” (The Canary Project) >>
