Those That Breathe

Set in the Canadian Arctic, THOSE THAT BREATHE is the powerful and intimate story of an Inuit community struggling to hold on to their culture as their homeland is being destroyed by rising sea temperatures. Where nature and identity are intrinsically tied together, we go deep into the lives of those who are on the the frontlines of the environmental crisis:  A teenage girl embarking on the sacred right-of-passage journey of hunting a polar bear,  a young mother trying to create a good life for her children despite widespread poverty that plagues the town, a father and son healing from the scars of colonial trauma, and an elder charged with protecting the land in the face of global warming.
