In Silakut, Zacharias Kunuk discusses with community members from five Baffin Island communities, the proposed expansion of the Mary River Mine. They meet together on the land and play string games, hunt, talk about their campsites, tell stories of their youth, and voice their opinions of the mine and its operations. Youth and Inuit musicians hold a live concert about their culture and resilience. Silakut – Live from the Floe Edge is a creative investigation of questions the community has over the Mary River Mine proposed expansion.
