Best known for the film “Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner,” awarded the Camera d’Or at Cannes in 2001, Isuma has also produced hauntingly beautiful documentaries of Inuit life and culture and a thirteen part mini-series recreating life in early-twentieth-century Igloolik. The exhibition features 41 videos and films by Isuma and two affiliated companies, Arnait and Artcirq.

The videos of Isuma, Arnait and Artcirq bolster local control over the community to present and promote an alternative to Western-style film and television, and to conserve Inuit knowledge and broadcast it beyond the North.
