ABOUT THE FILM
A beautiful film telling the story of 2 Inuit communities of the circumpolar north – one on Canada’s Baffin Island, the other in Northwest Greenland – linked by a migration led by an intrepid shaman over 150 years ago. Today, Navarana, an Inughuit elder and descendant of the shaman, travels to her ancestor’s homeland to connect with her distant Canadian cousins. She witnesses how these 2 genetically-linked groups of Inuit have adapted differently to outside influences and to changes affecting their hunting traditions. She hopes to find the key to making the right choices for her people’s survival.
