My Father's Land
Available on iTunes
Mixing fictional re-enactment of the past with contemporary arctic reality, Cannes award-winning director Zacharias Kunuk looks at his own childhood history growing up on Inuit land now facing multi-national mining in North Baffin Island. Kunuk uses new media to inform and consult Inuit and bring global transparency to 2012 Final Public Hearings on Baffinland Iron Mine's Mary River proposal to build the world's largest iron mine on Kunuk's Inuit homeland between Igloolik and Pond Inlet. My Father’s Land records what Inuit say when someone listens.
