Watch Party: NEWTOK – The Water is Rising
May 24, 2022 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm€15
Losing ground to climate change, this Alaskan community resolves to save itself.
Join us for the online screening “Newtok – The Water is Rising” followed by a discussion about the film with other professionals from our network that are passionate about sustainability.
Although not directly linked to fashion, we are keen to view this important documentary to be even more conscious of the true implications of going on with ‘business as usual’. We hope that viewing this film together will provide feed for conversation and a renewed drive to pursue our respective work in the field of sustainability.
Water will erase Newtok, Alaska. Built on a delta at the edge of the Bering Sea, the tiny Yup’ik village has been dealing with melting permafrost, river erosion, and decaying infrastructure for decades. To keep their culture and community intact, the 360 Yup’ik residents must relocate their entire village to stable ground upriver while facing a federal government that has failed to take appropriate action to combat climate change. In moving their village, they will become some of America’s first 21st-century climate refugees. It is a film about of a village seeking justice in the face of climate disaster.
This movie will be screened once via Good Brand Guru and will not be recorded or available via our channels post-screening.
Supporters and members of the Good Brand Guru network will receive a personal invite to attend this event free of charge. Sign up as a supporter here.
