Since its beginnings in 1991, Arnait Video Productions (AVP) has traced a trajectory revealing the originality of its producers, the context of their work and lives, as well as their strong desire to express cultural values unique in Canada.
AVP’s productions are the expression of research into traditional and contemporary Inuit styles of narration. An underlying context for the stories told in our video works is the formal innovations associated with the Inuit of Igloolik appropriating videographic tools.
Arnait is the plural of arnaq which means ‘woman’. It is no surprise then that Arnait Video Productions is composed of some of the most ambitious, creative, and cooperative women in Igloolik.
