SFU Woodwards is screening the new film Angry Inuk on Wednesday October 25, 2017 as part of an Indigenous film festival.
The film is a beautiful Inuit response to animal rights organizations' attacks on Inuit subsistence seal hunting.
The filmmaker Alethea Arnaquq-Baril is part of a new generation of female Inuit activists who use digital arts to promote Inuit culture and values.
This screening is part of Aabiziingwashi (Wide Awake): NFB Indigenous Cinema on Tour. Throughout 2017, the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) is offering the films in its exceptional collection of 250+ Indigenous-made works to all Canadians — for community screenings! These are the stories of our land, told by First Nations, Métis and Inuit filmmakers from every region of the country. Powerful, political, and profound, these films will initiate and inspire conversations on identity, family, community, and nationhood.
