Garrett is currently in Pre-Production for his next feature documentary, “Polar People”.
“Polar People” is a feature documentary highlighting three of the most isolated Inuit communities in the Arctic - Siorapaluk, Greenland; Sachs Harbour, Canada; and Wales, Alaska. Despite their separation, these communities all share an interconnected culture that has allowed them to survive under the harshest of conditions for thousands of years.
Based on the coast, these communities are beginning to face more serious risks than ever before due to the onset of climate change. Higher sea levels as well as rising temperatures, less sea ice and unpredictable weather all threaten their home and way of life. As they move towards the future, the people must adapt to the climate and find a way to save their age-old culture.
