Angry Inuk wins the Canada's Top Ten People's Choice Award

Alethea Arnaquq-Baril's doc investigates the global anti-sealing movement's damaging impact on Inuit communities.

Toronto audiences chose Alethea Arnaquq-Baril’s documentary Angry Inuk as their People's Choice Award-winner from Canada's Top Ten Film Festival. Part exposé, part personal documentary, and part community portrait (Arnaquq-Baril’s family lives on Baffin Island, one of the regions hardest hit in economic terms by various protests and bans), the film investigates the global anti-sealing movement's damaging impact on Inuit communities.

Alethea, who had returned to Iqaluit after her screenings at the festival, sent us this reaction video when she found out the news:

In her response, she told us: "Thank you to everyone who was willing to open their hearts and minds to a perspective they hadn't seen before."

And the title of Alethea's video?

"Happy Inuk."
