Inuuvunga - Je suis Inuk. Je suis vivant

Dans ce long métrage documentaire, huit jeunes adolescents inuit posent leur regard de cinéaste sur la vie contemporaine dans le Nord canadien et proposent un compte rendu pénétrant sur le passage à l'âge adulte à une époque de confusion et de désagrégation culturelle.

Ce film fait partie du projet Unikkausivut. Procurez-vous le coffret DVD Unikkausivut : Transmettre nos histoires.

Indigenous Studies - Identity/Society
Indigenous Studies - Issues and Contemporary Challenges

An excellent film for acquainting students with the various problems faced by Inuit communities: suicide, addiction, and issues related to the co-existence of traditions and modernity. The teacher can get a discussion started by asking the following question: do you think the co-existence of traditional and modern ways of thinking is at the core of the problems experienced by the inhabitants of this community? What is at stake for the community?
