    Igloolik is a community of 1200 people located on a small island in the north Baffin region of the Canadian Arctic with archeological evidence of 4000 years of continuous habitation. Throughout these millennia, with no written language, untold numbers of nomadic Inuit renewed their culture and traditional knowledge for every generation entirely through storytelling.

    Our film Atanarjuat is part of this continuous stream of oral history carried forward into the new millennium through a marriage of Inuit storytelling skills and new technology.

    Atanarjuat is Canada's first feature-length fiction film written, produced, directed, and acted by Inuit. An exciting action thriller set in ancient Igloolik, the film unfolds as a life-threatening struggle between powerful natural and supernatural characters.

    Atanarjuat gives international audiences a more authentic view of Inuit culture and oral tradition than ever before, from the inside and through Inuit eyes.

    For countless generations, Igloolik elders have kept the legend of Atanarjuat alive to teach young Inuit the danger of setting personal desire above the needs of the group.

    The tale of making the film is itself made up of many stories...

    More About Film   /   View Film or Download

    A co-production of Igloolik Isuma Productions and Kunuk Cohn Productions, Before Tomorrow is the first feature film written and directed by Igloolik's Arnait Video Productions women's collective, which has been filming Inuit women's stories since 1991 based on cultural authenticity and community involvement.

    Before Tomorrow is directed by Marie-Hélène Cousineau and Madeline Ivalu from a script by Susan Avingaq, Marie-Hélène Cousineau and Madeline Ivalu, adapted from the novel For morgendagen by the acclaimed Danish writer Jørn Riel. It is produced by Stéphane Rituit, with executive producers Norman Cohn and Zacharias Kunuk. Leading the cast are Madeline Ivalu and her grandson Paul-Dylan Ivalu, joined by Mary Qulitalik, Peter-Henry Arnatsiaq and Tumasie Sivuarapik.

    Before Tomorrow is the story of a woman who demonstrates that human dignity is at the core of life from beginning to end, as she faces with her grandson the ultimate challenge of survival. The film was shot in remote locations near the community of Puvirnituq, Nunavik (norhtern Quebec) over four separate periods between July 2006 and January 2007 to capture the arctic seasons from June though December.

    Before Tomorrow premiered in Igloolik on the weekend of February 23-24, 2008. Members of the Arnait Video collective (Susan Avingaq, Madeline Ivalu, Carol Kunnuk and Marie-Hélène Cousineau) presented the film in front of attentive audiences in the school gym. Actors, props and select costumes from the film were also on display. As with previous films produced by Igloolik Isuma Productions, the film's first audience was the community involved in making the film. The following month producers also screened the film in Puvirnituq, Nunavik, where the film was shot.

    Before Tomorrow was released in Canada by Alliance Motion Picture Distribution and Alliance Vivafilm in March 2009. Before Tomorrow is distributed internationally by Isuma Distribution International. U.S. premiere was a two-week run at Film Forum in New York December 2-15, 2009.The film now is available for Video-on-Demand download in standard definition or full HD from isuma.tv/fastrunnertrilogy.

    Before Tomorrow was produced in association with Alliance Atlantis, Alliance Vivafilm, Telefilm Canada, SODEC, the Nunavut Film Development Commission and with the support of NITV. With thanks to Makivik Corporation,First Air, and Air Inuit. Thanks also to the people and mayor's office of Puvirnituq, the Nunavik Arctic Survival Training Centre, Kativik school board, and the Cooperative of Puvirnituq for their support.

    The founding mandate of Igloolik Isuma Productions is to empower Inuit voices to tell their own stories. Isuma's first feature, Atanarjuat The Fast Runner, won the Camera d'or at Cannes 2001 and Best Picture at Canada's 2002 Genie Awards. Isuma's second feature, The Journals of Knud Rasmussen, opened the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival. Isuma's executive producers, Zacharias Kunuk and Norman Cohn, continue this mandate in Isuma's third feature film,  Before Tomorrow, the first written and produced by the Arnait Video Women's Collective.

    uploaded by: IsumaTV

    In the documentary film Inuit Cree Reconciliation (Inuit Adlait Isumagijuniqatiginiiq), Zacharias Kunuk and Neil Diamond team up to research the events and historical impacts of a 1770's war between Inuit and Cree in Northern Québec.

    Following the Peace Celebration Event held at Nastapoka River in northern Québec by a small group of Inuit and Cree in the summer of 2011, Zacharias Kunuk (Inuit) and Neil Diamond (Cree) - two of Canada's most respected filmmakers - interview Inuit and Cree Elders in the side-by-side communities of Kuujjuarapik and Whapmagootsui researching an old 1770's war between the two nations and its impact on people today.

    Research for the project began in 2010. Check out some of the initial interviews here.

    As a parallel project to the film, the ARTCO project introduced Inuit and Cree children in the community to new media tools which were used in a multidisciplinary artistic process to explore past and present realities, to connect with others, practice collective action and create a better future.

This unforgettable film helps us to appreciate Inuit culture and expertise regarding environmental change and indigenous ways of adapting to it.

    Exploring centuries of Inuit knowledge, allowing the viewer to learn about climate change first-hand from Arctic residents themselves, the film portrays Inuit as experts regarding their land and wildlife and makes it clear that climate change is a human rights issue affecting this ingenious Indigenous culture. Hear stories about Arctic melting and how Inuit believe that human and animal intelligence are key to adaptability and survival in a warming world.

    Community-based screenings of the film are now being organized across Canada. Stay tuned for more information, new blog posts and videos added to this channel regularly.

    Nunavut (Our Land) Episode 1: Qimuksik (Dog Team)

    uploaded by: Norman Cohn

    channel: Exploring Inuit Culture Online

    Qimuksik (Dog Team) is one of the 13-part Nunavut (Our Land) series follows five fictional families through the different seasons of an Arctic year, from the glorious northern spring to a uniquely Inuit Christmas Day. Other programs include contemporary documentaries on whale and polar bear hunting, modern leadership, elders’ advice, and a youth group’s effort to learn circus skills to reduce youth suicide.

    Igloolik, Spring 1945. In Qimuksik (Dog Team) while imparting knowledge to the next generation, one family travels in the immense and beautiful arctic during spring.

    Inuaraq teaches his young son how to survive in the old way: driving the dogs, building the igloo, catching seals on the open water, running down caribou to feed the family.                scroll for more info...

    Content summary:

    • Dad teaching his son about survival: navigation, ice thickness
    • Dad being a role model
    • Tracking caribou by examining hoof prints and using the raven’s flight direction and sound
    • Skinning a caribou – special way to do this for clothing (instead of random use)
    • Relationship with the dogs: man and dogs have a very special connection: they work together and one cannot live without the other. The man feeds the dogs and working with dogs has many benefits (unlike a skidoo, dogs don’t run out of gas!). Dogs are useful for polar bear hunting. The dogs know where there is thin ice, know how to avoid danger while travelling. The dogs can find their way home, even during a white-out or blizzard. Jayson Kunnuk
