ANGRY INUK: DOCUMENTARY SCREENING

January 21st, 2019

Please join the University of Winnipeg Students’ Association (UWSA) for a screening of award-winning documentary, Angry Inuk. The event is FREE TO ATTEND and all are welcome. RSVP through Facebook here! 

Seal hunting, a critical part of Inuit life, has been controversial for a long time. Now, a new generation of Inuit, armed with social media and their own sense of humour and justice, are challenging the anti-sealing groups and bringing their own voices into the conversation. Director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril joins her fellow Inuit activists as they challenge outdated perceptions of Inuit and present themselves to the world as a modern people in dire need of a sustainable economy.

Please visit this link for the trailer: https://vimeo.com/181059386

The venue is accessible by elevators and the movie has English subtitles. Please email us at events@theuwsa.ca for additional accessibility support.

Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall is located on the 3rd floor of Centennial Hall on the downtown campus of the University of Winnipeg.
