This one-hour event showcased four short films made by Indigenous youth who participated in this year’s edition of The Planetary Health Film Lab, hosted by the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research. Each film runs between three and seven minutes in length and profiles Indigenous perspectives, impacts, and solutions to planetary health issues in their communities. This event, hosted by the project coordinator and instructor, Dr. Mark Terry, took place remotely via Zoom, September 13th, 2021. All four films were screened consecutively with a question period with the filmmakers following the screenings.
