Featuring groundbreaking footage from seven winters in the Arctic, People of a Feather takes you through time into the world of Inuit on the Belcher Islands in Hudson Bay. Connecting past present and future is a unique cultural relationship with the eider duck. Eider down, the warmest feather in the world, allows both Inuit and bird to survive harsh Arctic winters. Recreations of traditional life are juxtaposed with modern life in Sanikiluaq, as both people and eiders face the challenges posed by changing sea ice and ocean currents disrupted by the massive hydroelectric dams powering eastern North America. The eyes of a remote subsistence culture challenge the world to find energy solutions that work with the seasons of our hydrological cycle.

By looking at the interconnectedness of the eider duck and the Inuits who live on the Belcher Islands in Hudson Bay, we can see how Arctic sea life is affected by events taking place elsewhere. Hydroelectric dams are changing water patterns. We can see the changes affect the daily lives of these island people. I hope it will make us all stop and think about what we are doing to our environment.
