John Walker, whose doc ARCTIC DEFENDERS has screened throughout our network, reflects on the value of providing public screenings to foster serious dialogue about political issues.
Sometimes art imitates life. Sometimes... life is art, and activism.
Hello Cinema Politica Sites! There will be a public lecture by Inuk activist and Nobel Peace Prize Nominee Shelia Watt-Cloutier in the lead up to the COP-17 climate negotiations in Durban, South Africa. Watt-Cloutier is one of the foremost leaders in Inuit rights, being one of the first people to link the issue of climate change to human rights in her 2005 petition submitted on behalf of Inuit communities to the InterAmerican Commission on Human Rights. This lecture appears to be the only Canadian awareness events occurring around the COP-17 negotiations. Politicians, environmental activists, and many other notable people have been contacted to attend this lecture.
