SJIWFF is partnering with the second annual FemFest NL and the St. John's Status of Women's Council/Centre to present a special screening of Angry Inuk at The Space (Harbour Drive, St. John's) on Sunday, August 13th, 7-9pm. All FemFest NL events are pay-what-you-can at the door.
In her award-winning documentary, director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril joins a new tech-savvy generation of Inuit as they campaign to challenge long-established perceptions of seal hunting. Armed with social media and their own sense of humour and justice, this group is bringing its own voice into the conversation and presenting themselves to the world as a modern people in dire need of a sustainable economy.
This is a repeat screening by SJIWFF, and every audience has loved this incredible documentary.
About FemFest NL
