Environmental anthropologist Dr. Susan A. Crate will present and discuss this documentary (screened at the recent Paris climate summit) following her and teenage daughter Katie, as they travel the globe to explore effects of climate change on centuries-old indigenous communities. “Climate change forces us to have to learn the family business,” says Mary Catherine Bateson, daughter of famed anthropologist Margaret Mead. While Mead analyzed how communities confront change resulting from war and modernity, Crate and Bateson find that climate change forces communities to reconfigure how and where they live. Directors: Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, Jeremy Newberger. (US 2015) 81 min. plus discussion.
