Ticket Required

The impact of climate change has been felt dramatically by Native communities in the U.S. and around the world. Despite poisoned resources, corporatism, and an existential threat to their homelands, these vulnerable communities rarely fall under the spotlight, and their stories go untold.

This special New Climate discussion welcomes Anote Tong, former president of the disappearing island of Kiribati; Bartholomew Powaukee, Environmental and Water Quality Director for Utah's Ute Tribe; Tashka Yawanawa, chief of the Yawanawa; and moderator Janaya Khan of Black Lives Matter, Canada; all at the forefront of the conservation fight to deconstruct histories and mythologies around climate change, discuss how story and technology can share a hidden point of view, and reveal creative initiatives to combat current trends and thinking around the climate change.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
