Documentary (82 min)
Inuit director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril joins a tech-savvy generation of Inuit as they challenge long-established views of seal hunting. Anti-sealing activism has created a perception of the industry that denies the Inuit’s central role in the sealskin market.
To reinsert themselves into the international discussion, these Inuit activists must inconvenience the fundraising campaigns of animal groups by using all the tricks in the social media book, and invent some of their own along the way, like “sealfies.”
