This event is part of the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition 2023.

Nominated for the 95th Academy Awards for Best Documentary Short Film, Haulout follows scientist Maxim Chakilev, who observes the life of walruses at Cape Heart-Stone in the Chukchi Sea where rising temperatures bring about an unexpected change.

The documentary was directed by National Geographic Society Storytelling Fellow, Evgenia Arbugaeva, and her brother, Maxim Arbugaev.

Evgenia Arbugaeva was born in the town of Tiksi, located on the shore of the Laptev Sea in the Republic of Yakutia in Siberia. In her personal work, she often looks into her homeland, the Arctic, discovering and documenting the remote worlds and people who inhabit them. 

The screenings will be followed by a Q&A session with director Evgenia Arbugaeva.
