Synopsis: This film shows the inspiration, often related to belief in the supernatural, behind Inuit sculpture. The Inuit's approach to the work is to release the image the artist sees imprisoned in the rough stone. The film centres on an old legend about the carving of the image of a sea spirit to bring food to a hungry camp.

Filmmaker: John Feeney

The strangers from Greenland sit in the snow house of Avva, a shaman.  Avva introduces his family to the visitors. The scene is tense, with silences that are awkward or watchful.  Avva puffs on his pipe.

The filmmakers of The Journals of Knud Rasmussen write, 'This film asks questions among others, about vanished peoples, colonization, cultural amnesia, effaced memory, Christianization and the complete erasure of a religion - especially in the absence of a literary tradition in most Aboriginal oral cultures.'
