Coming soon: the Sustainable Futures North short film series

Sustainable Futures North is one of my ongoing research projects that aims to understand the interactions among security, natural resource development, and environmental sustainability. Part of this work is ethnographic, and we have enlisted an ethnographic filmmaker named Sarah Betcher to produce a series of short films that provide an intimate look at life in the remote North, including the effects of climate change, globalization, and how local people are working hard to maintain important subsistence practices.

Here is a short trailer for the short film series, which will be released starting in January of 2015.
