Never Saw It

About

21 January 2009

Mosha Folger draws a narrative arc with spoken word and song; from his Inuit ancestors hunting seals to leaving his Arctic home to the glimmer of hope he sees for the future of his people. Mosha's unique perspective reveals a culture and way of life far removed from the romantic notions of igloos and naked men running across the sea ice. Mosha has featured at over a dozen shows and performed at slams and open mics in Ottawa and Vancouver since December of 2005. He has garnered renown for his intimate, personal work, but Mosha doesn't shy away from making his opinion known. Never Saw It is part poetry and music, part biography, and part polemic. It is a brief history of an Inuk lifetime.

    channel: folger

    Inspired by the work of my maternal grandfather, Pudlo Pudlat, this stop-motion short tells the story of a male owl, driven by hunger, as he goes in search of food in a late-spring snowstorm – but in his pursuit he may have met his match.

    Writer/director/producer: Mosha Folger

    I could not have completed the project without the help of Karen, my partner in all things.
