Nunaqpa is the second Isuma recreated fiction, filmed with actors in 1990 recreating a Summer caribou hunt in the 1930's. For Igloolik Inuit, it is the time of Nunaqpa, 'going inland,' the long walk in search of summer-fat caribou to catch enough meat for the hard winter ahead. Two families leave for the hunt, while the old couple and grandmother wait by the shore for their return.

Nunaqpa (Going Inland) (58 mins), Igloolik Isuma Productions 1991, Zacharias Kunuk, Pauloosie Qulitalik, Norman Cohn. Inuktut no subtitles.
