AABIZIINGWASHI TOUR

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.

ANGRY INUK
Alethea Arnaquq-Baril | 2016 | 85 min

Seal hunting, a critical part of Inuit life, has been controversial for a long time. Now, a new generation of Inuit, armed with social media and their own sense of humour and justice, are challenging the anti-sealing groups and bringing their own voices into the conversation. Director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril joins her fellow Inuit activists as they challenge outdated perceptions of Inuit and present themselves to the world as a modern people in dire need of a sustainable economy.

Co-presented by SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement, SFU's Department of Sociology and Anthropology, and the National Film Board of Canada
