In her award-winning documentary, director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril joins a new tech-savvy generation of Inuit as they campaign to challenge long-established perceptions of seal hunting. Armed with social media and their own sense of humour and justice, this group is bringing its own voice into the conversation and presenting themselves to the world as a modern people in dire need of a sustainable economy.
Throughout October, WVML will host four screenings of Indigenous films from the National Film Board as part of the NFB’s “Aabiziingwashi (Wide Awake): NFB Indigenous Cinema on Tour”, which aims to bring stories told by First Nations, Metis, and Inuit filmmakers to viewers across the country. Powerful and profound, these films will educate, inspire, and help create new understanding and connections between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians.
