Screening of the groundbreaking Discovery documentary, SHERPA  (90 min, 2015, Dir: Jennifer Peedom). Mount Everest’s Sherpa community united in grief and anger to reclaim their sacred mountain following the deadly avalanche that struck on April 18, 2014, killing 16 of their members. The project originally began as a documentary about the 2014 climbing season from the Sherpas’ point of view with a focus on legendary Sherpa Phurba Tashi’s world record-breaking attempt to summit Everest for the 22nd time. Instead, they captured the single deadliest day in the mountain’s history. The disaster provoked a drastic reappraisal of the Everest climbing industry, and it served as a turning point for many of the Sherpas and their families as they considered whether to continue working on the mountain.

Post-screening discussion with Sherpa director Jennifer Peedom and Pasang Yangjee Sherpa (Post-Doctoral Fellow for Sacred Landscapes & Sustainable Futures, The New School). Moderator: Angela Zito (NYU Center for Religion and Media). Reception follows discussion.

4:30-6:30 PM  Screening of Angry Inuk
Screening of the documentary Angry Inuk (2016, 82 min), directed by Inuk filmmaker Alethea Arnaquq-Baril. Though most commercial sealing is conducted by Inuit in the Arctic, anti-sealing activism has created a perception of the industry that denies their central role in the sealskin market. Seal meat is a staple food for Inuit, and many of the pelts are sold to offset the extraordinary cost of hunting. Inuit communities are pushing for a sustainable way to take part in the global economy, but in opposition stands an army of well-funded activists and well-meaning celebrities. Post-screening discussion Director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril (via Skype) with Andrew Okpeaha MacLean (Film & TV, NYU)
