Kivalina v. Exxon

This screening took place on
Friday, February 8, 2013 at 3:30pm
Yukon Arts Centre

The winter sea ice that once protected the 400 residents of Kivalina is receding at an unprecedented rate, exposing this Inupiat village, perched on a small barrier island on the Chukchi Sea, to the battering ram of fall and winter storms and putting the village’s buildings and infrastructure in imminent danger of falling into the sea. This documentary portrays the epic struggle of this community to save their village, and by filing a lawsuit against two dozen of the world’s most powerful oil, coal and power companies, force the world’s worst polluters to pay for the consequences of global warming.
