People of a Feather movie sceneThe 2011 documentary film People of a Feather by Joel Heath takes viewers through time into the world of the Inuit in the northern reaches of Canada.

Featuring stunning footage from seven winters in the Arctic, People of a Feather presents the the Inuit’s unique relationship with the eider duck, an indigenous species that connects the Inuit’s past, present and future. Eider down, the warmest feather in the world, allows both Inuit and bird to survive harsh Arctic winters.

Changing sea ice and ocean currents disrupted by the massive hydroelectric dams powering eastern North America bring modern challenges to these Arctic residents.

Inspired by Inuit ingenuity and the amazing properties of the eider feather, the People of a Feather acts as a call to action to implement energy solutions that work with nature.

• Short Films: Community Based Monitoring / Eider Studies / History / Location / Sanikiluaq Today
