Asivaqtiin (Les chasseurs)

| 13 min

Sorti en 1977, ce court métrage au rythme paisible a été tourné, réalisé, monté et narré par Mosha Michael, l'un des premiers cinéastes inuits du Canada. Il y propose le récit personnel d'une excursion de chasse de trois semaines dans l'Arctique, un voyage de réhabilitation entrepris par de jeunes contrevenants et leurs familles. Jetant l'ancre à divers endroits dans la baie de Frobisher, ils pêchent la morue, chassent le phoque et le caribou, et réaffirment leurs liens familiaux et communautaires. À l'aide de sa caméra Super 8, Michael a saisi des moments captivants de la vie des Inuit dans les années 1970. La trame sonore inclut des prestations de Kowmageak Arngnakolak et de Mosha lui-même.
