Overview

The documentary explores the Greenlandic concept of SILA, a highly meaningful term that encompasses weather, balance and consciousness. Amidst a breathtaking frozen landscape, two vastly independent groups, Inuit subsistence hunters and a group of polar scientists, bear witness to the transforming environment due to climate change.

In the world’s most northern inhabited town, a small Inuit settlement struggles with the drastic change in weather pattern, their centuries-old lifestyle is vanishing. Their stories are vividly woven together with those of a small group of international researchers on Greenland’s vast Inland Ice Cap. Both sides of witnesses bring a human face to the highly politicized issue of climate change and illustrate the impact our over-industrialized world can ever have on a small isolated Arctic community.
