This documentary explores the Greenlandic concept of Sila, a multifaceted term that encompasses weather, consciousness and the universe. Amidst the breathtaking landscape of Greenland, where climate change is most visible, two vastly independent groups of Inuit subsistence hunters and a group of polar scientists, bear witness to the transforming environment. Their interwoven stories define the term sila in today’s globalized world. Join us a for a post screening conversation with Director Corina Gamma.
Screening shown in conjunction with “Weather on Steroids: The Art of Climate Change,” on view through September 3rd in the Central Library Art Gallery. Co-presented by the La Jolla Historical Society and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
