There’s a lot happening in the Arctic. Canadians are talking about environmental, geopolitical, military and cultural issues, and Stories from Our Land: 1.5 adds engaging voices to the discussion. The Stories program gave 6 Nunavut filmmakers the opportunity to create a 5-minute short that followed a couple of key guidelines: Each film had to be made without the use of interviews or narration, and it had to tell a northern story from a northern perspective.

Going Home
Abdoul Aziz Sakho fastens his rooftop sign - number 148 - to his cab and embarks on an evening of driving mostly familiar passengers to their destinations in and around Iqaluit. It's a routine night ... until Sakho picks up an unsettling fare.

Filmmaker Bjorn Simonsen lives in Iqaluit.
