Mining has already started to change the look of the town in inordinate ways largely uncontrolled by the residents of Igloolik. Some Iglulingmiut support and others are strongly opposed to diamond exploitation. Mining creates jobs but takes its toll on traditional visions of and relations to the land.

We will use video as a tool for investigating our subjects, some of which are: the impact of industrialization and mining on local mythology and legends, how people make choices for their future, the coexistence of legends and economical development. This work will be shared through the internet and as a video installation.
