Students will research the Inuit style of filmmaking and list key points involved in the process by reading selections written by the three founding members of Igloolik Isuma Productions, the makers of the films Atanarjuat – The Fast Runner and The Journals of Knud Rasmussen. After discussing the components of making a film from an Inuit perspective and exploring www.sila.nu, a website dedicated to this process, groups of students will choose a film idea and imagine they are part of an Inuit team making a film. Students will write a diary entry documenting the process of producing their film from an Inuit perspective.
