Alaskan adventurer and filmmaker Bjorn Olson will show a trailer and present a slideshow from his ongoing film project about the Native Tribe of Diomede. In 2019, Bjorn was contacted by the tribe to make a film about how climate change is affecting this Bering Strait community. In 2023, Bjorn was awarded the Alaska Wilderness League's Adam Kolton Storyteller Grant to continue developing this film. Learn about the challenges this community is facing in a rapidly changing world and about the difficulties of making a film in one of the most remote villages in North America.
