Angry_Inuk_2“Something had to be said … about how unfairly we’ve been treated by anti-sealers” Alethea Arnaquq-Baril

Angry Inuk is a documentary film project in the making by Unikkaat Studios Inc. in co-production with the National Film Board of Canada, and in association with EyeSteelFilm. Angry Inuk is about how Inuit hunters in tiny remote communities in the high arctic are negatively affected by animal rights groups protesting against the Canadian east coast seal hunt that happens a thousand kilometres away.

The film is scheduled to screen the first week in May at the Hot Docs festival in Toronto May 2- 7 2016. See here for details on screen times and how to buy tickets.

The film crew started principal photography in January 2012, and completed in the spring of 2015.
