NFB Film Club at the Antigonish Library presents Arctic Defenders Tuesday, March 28 at 7 p.m.

Join us for a National Film Board (NFB) movie at the library! Bring snacks (peanut-free please), all are welcome! About the film: Set in the dramatic and alluring landscape of the north, ‘Arctic Defenders’ tells the remarkable story that began in1968 with a radical Inuit movement that changed the political landscape forever. It lead to the largest land claim in western civilization, orchestrated by young visionary Inuit with a dream – the governance of their territory – the creation of Nunavut. The story reveals Canada’s misguided attempts at sovereignty in the north and finds hope and inspiration from determined people who changed the rules of the game. (2013, 90 min)
