Artist Asinnajaq throws a creative net into the National Film Board of Canada’s audiovisual archive, weaving historic footage of the Inuit into a stunningly original animation. In 14 minutes of luminescent cinema, she recasts the past, present and future of the Inuit in a surprising new light.
This is the first film by Asinnajaq (Inuk) who has also guest curated Channel 51: Igloolik, this year’s spotlight on 30 years of Inuit video art.
