Arctic Defenders

Friday – Sunday / April 25 – 27 / 7 pm
Directed by John Walker
2013, Canada, 85 mins

Winner, Best Atlantic Feature, Atlantic Film Festival

Arctic Defenders has played to turn away crowds at film festivals in Halifax, Vancouver and Montreal. The film tells the remarkable story that began in 1968 with a radical Inuit movement in Canada that would change the political landscape forever. It led to the largest land claim in western civilization, orchestrated by young visionary Inuit with a dream—the governance of their territory—the creation of Nunavut. The story reveals the dark side of Canada’s attempt at sovereignty in the north and finds hope and inspiration from determined Inuit who changed the rules of the game.

Reviews

An epic drama featuring radicals, visionaries and Western civilization’s largest land claim. It’s also an incredibly personal film, as it charts Walker’s return to the High Arctic he first explored as a wide-eyed teenager.” —VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
