DIR: ALETHEA ARNAQUQ-BARILL
INUK | CANADA
2016 | 85 MINS
In this multi-award-winning documentary, Alethea Arnaquq-Baril sheds a powerful light on anti–seal hunting campaigns and the relevance of the hunt to the lives of the Inuit. Long a vital source of food and income for the Inuit, the seal hunt has been disrupted by high profile, international campaigns fronted by celebrities and led by well-funded animal rights organisations. The ensuing bans on seal products have caused financial devastation to northern communities, creating what the filmmaker calls the Inuit Great Depression.
ANGRY INUK follows an emerging group of Inuit activists – armed with their own sense of humour and justice – as they insert themselves into the international discussion. It was released in 2016 to great critical acclaim winning the Alanis Obomsawin Best Documentary Award at imagineNATIVE, and the TIFF Canada’s Top Ten People’s Choice Award.
