FEATURED VIDEO: Q&A Following Special Screening of “Inuk,” Directors Guild Theater

A panel and Q&A at the Directors Guild Theater followed an invitation-only screening of the award-winning film “Inuk,” presented by Hollywood, Health & Society, a program of the USC Annenberg Norman Lear Center, as part of its storytelling initiative to increase the number of climate change storylines in TV, film and new media.

The special evening drew industry writers and producers along with the film’s makers and cast, including director Mike Magidson, producer Anne Andreasen and the movie’s two young leads—Gaaba Petersen, who plays Inuk, and Sara Lyberth.

Magidson and Andreasen joined NASA-JPL climate scientist Mike Gunson on the panel, along with another of the film’s co-stars, Rebekka Jørgensen. Greenland is the dramatic backdrop for the film and its story of traditional ways being threatened by global warming.
