Resources and Sustainable Development in the Arctic (ReSDA) and the Resources, Economy and Society Research Group (RESRG), in cooperation with the Department of History and the Bay Street Film Festival, are pleased to present Angry Inuk, a feature-length documentary film by Alethea Arnaquq-Baril.

Angry Inuk looks at seal hunting, a critical part of Inuit life that has been controversial for a long time, and how 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 voices into the conversation. Director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril joins her fellow Inuit activists as they challenge outdated perceptions of the Inuit and present themselves to the world as a modern people in dire need of a sustainable economy. Angry Inuk has won several awards already and was selected for the Toronto International Film Festival’s 2016 Canada’s Top 10 list.
