Lumaaq: An Eskimo Legend

Lumaaq: An Eskimo Legend

| 7 min

Lumaaq tells the story of a legend widely believed by the Povungnituk Inuit. The artist's drawings are transferred to paper, cut out, and animated under the camera. The result is Inuit prints in action. Dialogue, music and artwork make this film a total cultural transplant.
