North Cove, Wash. is one of the fastest-eroding U.S. coastlines, losing roughly 150 feet of land per year. However, the residents of North Cove refuse to give up without a fight. MediaLab at Pacific Lutheran University tells the story of residents, the tribal community, and farmers as they rally against the waves to save what’s left of their town.

"Scaling Iceland" explores how the country – a selectively membranous cell removed from, yet still connected within a rapidly globalizing world – is geologically, biologically, and culturally unique. Driven by voices ranging from geophysicists to musicians, folklorists to fishermen, geneticists to children on a playground, the film weaves together a collage of faceless images taken primarily from above and from various heights.
