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?
