Angry Inuk

I want everyone to see this documentary and I cannot recommend it enough. Seal hunting has come under a lot of scrutiny bringing worldwide attention (and typically scorn) to Canada. Inuk filmmaker and activist Alethea Arnaquq-Baril looks at the role seal hunting plays in the livelihood and well-being of the Inuit. As bans on seal hunting are pushed by environmental activists and international communities, the Inuit suffer the most. Arnaquq-Baril asks why seals receive more support than the human beings that live in the North and calls out anti-sealing activists who refuse to even meet with members of the Inuk community. A critical look at a difficult issue that will have you questioning your own beliefs about seal hunting.
