Between Earth and Sky - The Movie

A message from Vice Provost and Director, Janis L. Boettinger, PhD

Dear Colleagues,

Between Earth and Sky: Climate Change on the Last Frontier screens Friday, April 21, 2017, at 7 pm in the Eccles Conference Center Auditorium.
A discussion with David Weindorf, Executive Producer, and a reception follow the film.

The feature-length film, directed by two-time Emmy Award winner Paul Allen Hunton, explores the impact of global climate change on the ecosystems and peoples of Alaska. The film was recently screened at the 2017 Environmental Film Festival in Washington, D.C., and will be featured at the European Geophysical Union (EGU) meeting in Vienna, Austria, later this month.

In celebration of Earth Day and the March for Science on April 22, this screening is co-sponsored by the Office of Global Engagement; the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art; the Quinney College of Natural Resources; the Ecology Center; the Utah Climate Center; and the Department of Plants, Soils, and Climate at Utah State University.

Originally inspired by the legacy of University of Alaska-Fairbanks soils professor, Dr. Chien-Lu Ping, this film displays the larger issues of climate change and documents the human stories of those already suffering in the stark beauty of Alaska’s Arctic frontier.

We hope you will join us in celebration and awareness of our Earth. For more information about the film and to view the trailer, visit

Best wishes,
