Film Screening: "Angry Inuk"

Sun., Oct. 27, 3:15-4:40 p.m.


Seal hunting, a critical part of Inuit life, has been controversial for a long time. Now, a new generation of Inuit, armed with social media and their own sense of humor and justice, are challenging the anti-sealing groups and bringing their own voices into the conversation. Director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril joins her fellow Inuit activists as they challenge outdated perceptions of Inuit and present themselves to the world as a modern people in dire need of a sustainable economy.

Film Screening: "Circus without Borders"

Sun., Oct. 27, 12:40-1:50 p.m.


"Circus without Borders" is a documentary about Guillaume Saladin and Yamoussa Bangoura, best friends and world-class acrobats from remote corners of the globe who share the same dream: To bring hope and change to their struggling communities through circus. Their dream unfolds in the Canadian Arctic and Guinea, West Africa, where they help Inuit and Guinean youth achieve unimaginable success while confronting suicide, poverty and despair. Seven years in the making, this tale of two circuses–Artcirq and Kalabante–is a culture-crossing performance piece that offers a portal into two remote communities, and an inspiring story of resilience and joy.
