Disappear Here Film Club 2: Losing Alaska
ChangeMakers, Disappear Here Film Festival and Concern Worldwide are pleased to invite you to the second Disappear Here Film Club screening and post-film talk at the Market House, Clonmany, this Friday 1 July 2022 at 7:30pm.
Our second film is the powerful documentary ‘Losing Alaska’ from Director Tom Burke.
The 375 residents of Newtok, Alaska watch their homes disappear into rolling seas as winter storms steal their coastline and melting permafrost erodes the edges of their town. Tom Burke’s elegiac study follows the community as they struggle to maintain their traditional Yup’ik culture, a subsistence lifestyle of hunting and fishing, and build a new town on safer, higher ground.
Post film panel discussion
Our post screening discussion will include Donegal Green Party Chairman Michael White, Rosemary Mc Closkey, Vice Chair of Inishowen Rivers Trust and Duncan Stewart, Environmentalist, Activist and Architect, talking about how these issues are of local as well as global concern.
The Market House, Clonmany
1st July 7.30pm (Pay at the Door)
Entry to the film and post-screening discussion costs €7.50 and all proceeds go to the newly established ‘Donegal Documentary Fund’, to help raise awareness of sociopolitical and environmental issues in the county.
