Plot Synopsis:

In the striking frozen landscape of Greenland, the once-thriving Inuit culture and traditional life is threatened by the impact of global warming and the melting of the Arctic ice. The concept of SILA, a term that encompasses weather, balance, consciousness, frames a story in the world s northernmost inhabited village. Situated above the Arctic Circle in Greenland, Inuit subsistence hunters and a team of polar scientists bear witness to the transforming environment. As international researchers on Greenland s Inland Ice Cap track the effects and far-reaching consequences of the warming Arctic, drastic changes in weather patterns are also spelling an end to the Inuit s centuries-old way of life. With a close-up view into these communities, the film puts human faces on a highly politicized issue. It presents a small part of the earth as a sample of the challenges we face as a global community in an ecologically unstable and increasingly unsustainable and globalized world. In English, Greenlandic dialects, Inuktun, Kalaallisut, with English subtitles Bonus Feature: Interviews
