New Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change Video Trailer


04 June 2009


Here's our new project video trailer. It's a short summary of some of the incredible stories we've been hearing over our past month of filming in Pangnirtung, Resolute Bay and Iqaluit.

Over the next couple of months, we'll be working through the footage, and will be posting full interviews and edited thematic videos here on our project website for you to enjoy. Please stay tuned - we promise to bring you some of the most compelling Inuit-focused climate change discussion available.

Our crew will be meeting Zacharias in his home community of Igloolik in August to continue shooting. In September, we'll be heading to Arviat, the most southern Inuit community in Nunavut, and that will complete our Canadian shoot.

We've been invited by the United Nations to present our video work at the upcoming Copenhagen climate change negotiations, and we'll be heading there in December to document and present. So, over the next year, we'll have some amazing footage to share with you as the project unfolds.

Importantly, we want to engage and interact with you, so please connect with us here on IsumaTV. Write comments, post videos, or comment directly by video blogging from your computer. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me directly: ianmauro@uvic.ca

All the best from our crew. Take care.

      No longer able to hunt their prey the way their ancestors did, the young Wemotaci have become night runners through the deserted village. And can they ever run! They run for fun or just to exhaust themselves—until the police go after them. A fresh and lively filmmaking feat.
