The final hearings into Baffinland's project wrapped up on the weekend.... Inuit filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk is in the middle of capturing the life and land of Nunavut on film. "What I want to do is record the wildlife, the land, the beauty of the land," he said. "That's the project we're doing right now – to record it now, elders who are living now, and do it again in 10 years" ... Besides documenting the environmental change, Kunuk has hired a human rights lawyer to study the project. See full story at Zacharias Kunuk hires human rights lawyer.
