Inuktitut w/ subtitles
- Wednesday September 28, 2016 at 7:00PM
Anti–seal hunting campaigns have attracted high profile supporters, and with them, hefty financial contributions. Meanwhile, seal hunters are unjustly targeted for traditional practices that have supported them for centuries. How does a culture that exercises understated anger and finds peaceful ways to resolve conflict compete with animal activist groups that rely on anti-sealing sentiment they aggressively cultivate to underwrite their other causes? Alethea Arnaquq-Baril uses her filmmaking skills to organize and embolden a new tech-savvy generation of Inuit to stand up for their rights. Establishing #sealfie on Instagram and skillfully employing social media, they lobby legislators and expose misinformation while staying true to their values in their fight for survival.
