Bobby Echalook

Bobby Echalook was one of eight trainee filmmakers in Inukjuak who documented their final year of high school in Inuuvunga: I Am Inuk, I Am Alive, a participatory media initiative undertaken by the NFB in 2004. Mentored by professionals from Montreal’s EyeSteelFilm, the team crafted a richly detailed video journal, detailing everyday activities and addressing a broad range of issues confronting their community, including youth suicide and cultural upheaval. Also on the team: Sarah Idlout, Laura Iqaluk, Willia Ningeok, Caroline Ningiuk, Dora Ohaituk, Linus Kasudluak and Rita-Lucy Ohaituk.
