As part of our 3-part Indigenous Cultures Film Season, join us for a screening of Alethea Arnaquq-Baril’s 2017 documentary film, Angry Inuk.

This film explores the role of seal hunting from an Inuit perspective set against a backdrop of external forces who are threatening their way of life.

The film will be preceded by an optional gallery tour in the Museum’s new Polar Worlds gallery led by Claire Warrior, a Polar history researcher and Senior Interpretation Curator at the National Maritime Museum, who has recently returned from an expedition to the Arctic.

Following the film screening, the film’s director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril will give a talk via Skype chaired by Alastair Niven with time for audience Q&A.

The Indigenous Cultures Film Season has been guest-curated by ORIGINS Festival

Film running time: 85 mins

Film rating: PG

Drinks and snacks will be available to purchase.
