This film is a collection of short animated sequences produced by Inuit of the Cape Dorset (Baffin Island) Film Animation Workshop, which was established to teach northern people a new and novel form of creative expression. The results, as shown here, reveal an easy adaptation to the medium, a keen sense of observation and an underlying humour. There is some explanation in English and some in Inuktitut.

    I have been searching for this film that my father helped create, and it has been a wonder to find. Considering technology in the 70's I figure this is a piece of work and am proud to watch every second. Wish I could get DVD for personal collection.
