COLORS OF CHANGE
Experience Greenland through the eyes of artist Zaria Forman, NASA scientist John Sonntag and Inuit elder Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq, known as "Uncle." Zaria travels to Greenland for inspiration and to visit the fjord where she spread her mother’s ashes. Sonntag is the lead scientist for Operation IceBridge - he and his crew work tirelessly gathering information on the ice sheet. Uncle is an inuit elder who speaks for the ice and the changes seen since the 1960s. Witness the intersection of art, culture, and science in a region defined by climate change.

THE HUMAN ELEMENT
Renowned photographer James Balog (CHASING ICE) creates stunning images that reveal how environmental problems are damaging the lives of all Americans. Using the four elements – air, earth, fire and water – to frame his journey, Balog documents fishermen, firefighters, coal miners and children on the front lines of climate change, inspiring us to re-evaluate our relationship with the natural world.

A Q&A session with the filmmakers of Colors of Change will follow both screenings!
