Event description

Description

Donation £5-10 requested at door for festival costs

6.30pm SWEET OIL
Two daughters of a single mother use their imaginations to overcome the hardships of life in Northern Alberta, Canada’s once booming oil sands.
Dir. Chris Cowden | 2017 | Metis, Canada | 15’

2 SPIRIT DREAMCATCHER DOT COM
2 Spirit Dreamcatcher Dot Com queers and indigenizes traditional dating site advertisements, using a Butch NDN ‘lavalife’ lady (performed by director Thirza Cuthand). Following up on her video ‘2 Spirit Introductory Special $19.99,’ this work calls into question the forces of capitalism through envisioning a ‘financially unfeasible’ service for a small minority community.
Dir. Thirza Cuthand | 2017 | Canada | 5’

THE OWL AND THE LEMMING
With this Inuit fable, we quickly learn the value of being clever and humble, and why pride and arrogance are to be avoided.
Dir. Roselynn Akulukjuk | 2016 | Inuit, Nunavut | 4’

UKALIQ AND KALLA GO FISHING
Two unlikely friends - a lemming and an Arctic hare - spend the day together ice fishing and show how important it is to be kind, thoughtful, and prepared for whatever comes.
Dir. Nadia Mike | 2017 | Inuit, Nunavut | 5’

POLAR BEAR HUNTERS IN KULUSUK
Bent tells us about the life of the last polar bear hunters - from one of the most isolated villages on earth.
Gilles Vuillard | 2017 | Inuit, East Greenland | 4’

19:30 ANGRY INUK
Inuit have always been an afterthought in international discussions around seal hunting - casualties of a faraway war. Seal hunting was a moral hot topic in the 70’s and 80’s, and has once again gained the world’s attention, but times have changed since then. Aaju Peter has learned the language of the law, and now she is working with young Inuit who speak the language of media. Director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril joins her fellow Inuit activists as they challenge outdated perceptions of Inuit and present themselves to the world as a modern people in dire need of a sustainable economy.
Dir. Alethea Arnaquq-Baril | 2016 | Nunavut, Canada | 85’
