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.
A beautiful short film that captures the majesty of ice sculpted by wind and water. Time-lapse imagery reveals the dynamic intertidal dance of water and ice in the Arctic.
Filmmaker Ericka Chemko lives in Iqaluit.
