ABOUT THE FILM

Diving into the NFB’s vast archive, Inuk artist Asinnajaq plunges us into a sublime imaginary universe: luminescent, archive-inspired cinema that recasts the past, present and future of her people in a radiant new light. Embedding historic footage into original animation, she conjures up a vision of hope and beautiful possibility. Everything about this film is unique: the soundtrack, rich in various uses of speech, throat-singing, instruments and nature; the shifts between otherworldly-animation and archival footage, between colour and black & white, between work and play – all create a brilliant evocation of Inuit culture from mythic to modern. A gem.
