The Explorers Club will be hosting their 5th Annual Polar Film Festival November 4-5, 2016, at their famous New York clubhouse. We are happy to announce that our documentary, Northern Lights - shot and produced by Eric Foss - will be featured in the evening of the last day of the program! It will screen at 6pm, just before "Into the cold", and award-winning piece by Sebastian Copeland.
Other films being shown include "Children of Heart Mountain" (about the Children's Home in Uummannaq, Greenland I was fortunate enough to visit in 2015), "In The Middle of Everything" (a short film about fellow SOI alumnus Nicholas Castel's recent Arctic expedition), and various other works showcasing the Arctic culture and environment.
The North in Focus team is so grateful for all the support we have received in the creation and dissemination of this documentary. We hope members of the Explorers Club will enjoy it and gain a greater awareness of current movements to promote mental health in the North.
PS In a few days we will be departing for Nain, Nunatsiavut! If you want to follow the workshop as it unfolds in Nain, you can follow our social platforms:
