Angry Inuk (2016), Alethea Arnaqua-Baril (Dir.), nfb, 82 minutes
Angry Inuk, directed by Inuk filmmaker Alethea Arnaqua-Baril gives an Indigenous point-of-view to the anti-sealing ban that was imposed on northern communities in 1983.
In her award-winning documentary, director Arnaquq-Baril joins a new tech-savvy generation of Inuit as they campaign to challenge long-established perceptions of seal hunting. Armed with social media and their own sense of humour and justice, this group is bringing its own voice into the conversation and presenting themselves to the world as a modern people in dire need of a sustainable economy.
