    Join us for a National Film Board (NFB) movie at the library the last Thursday of the month! Bring snacks (peanut-free please), and all are welcome! If The Weather Permits (2003 | 28 min); In the vastness of northern Quebec, on the edge of the Arctic Ocean, lies the village of Kangirsujuaq in Nunavik. Here, tradition and modernity intersect on a daily basis. Teenagers lap up "southern" culture and play golf on the tundra. Their elders - many of them former nomads and hunters - are trying to get used to the strange feeling of staying put. Elisapie Isaac, born in Nunavik, decides to return to her roots on this breathtaking land. Above all, she asks the fundamental question: Can Inuit culture survive in the modern world? People of the Ice (2003 | 52 min); For over 4,000 years, the Inuit have lived in harmony with their Arctic environment. In this frozen landscape, survival depends on a deep understanding of the natural world. Today, global warming threatens the very nature of their habitat. As the ice disappears, so does the Inuit culture it is intimately connected to. People of the Ice looks at climate change through the eyes of the Inuit from several generations. Sheila Watt-Cloutier, president of the Inuit Circumpolar Conference, also weighs in on the issue. In Cloutier's view, as the planet heats up, the Inuit must draw on their ancient traditions to survive.
