ANGIRATTUT (COMING HOME)
Amitturmiut is the companion website for Angirattut (Coming Home) to provide supporting documentation and all the extra footage not included in the film, to give viewers a more in-depth look.
Angirattut is selected to screen at the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival, October 16 in its original Inuktitut version with no English subtitling, to highlight both the importance of the Inuit language, and also how indigenous filmmaking honours, maintains and strengthens indigenous languages.
Angirattut is a 90-minute film by award-winning Igloolik filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk, documenting Inuit knowledge, tradition and history during a restorative healing ceremony of Siugarjuk Inuit. After being relocated from their homeland 5 decades ago and dispersed throughout Nunavut, a group of elders return to Siugarjuk and embrace the restorative power of their homeland to heal personal loss. In doing so, they share their life history of an ancient way of life to help the next generation of Inuit meet the challenge of survival in the 21st century.
