New stop motion project directed by Zacharias Kunuk, featuring Madeline Ivalu, Lucy Tulugarjuk, and Jacky Qrunnut. Music from Beatrice Deer.
A young shaman must face her first test—a trip underground to visit Kannaaluk, The One Below, who holds the answers to why a community member has become ill. Facing dark spirits and physical challenges, she must trust her mentor's teachings and learn to control her fear.
Produced by Taqqut Productions and Kingulliit Productions.
Presented by Nunavut Independent Television Network (NITV) and Isuma Distribution International.
