Three Thousand (Trailer)

| 34 s

In this short film, Inuk artist Asinnajaq plunges us into a sublime imaginary universe—14 minutes of luminescent, archive-inspired cinema that recast the present, past and future of her people in a radiant new light.

Diving into the NFB’s vast archive, she parses the complicated cinematic representation of the Inuit, harvesting fleeting truths and fortuitous accidents from a range of sources—newsreels, propaganda, ethnographic docs, and work by Indigenous filmmakers. Embedding historic footage into original animation, she conjures up a vision of hope and beautiful possibility.

    A visually stunning poignant film. I loved how it juxtaposed her community across time and the positioning of culture and colonization as a presence throughout. It was so powerful so see a depiction of the future like this.

    It's been said that filmmakers are mandated to give us new visions that aid us to survive and thrive. This film gave me a new vision and enabled me to see a better future. I came here to see something my mind could never create, that no mind I know could ever think of creating, and that's what I got.
