A stunning documentary by Zacharias Kunuk (Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner) and filmmaker Dr. Ian Mauro (Seeds of Change), Qapirangajug explores the social and ecological impacts of a warming Arctic from the perspectives of hunters and elders. This film, the world's first Inuktitut language film with English subtitles on the topic of climate change, features beautiful footage of the north and powerful interviews with Inuit.
