Cinema Politica Free Film Screening: Angry Inuk
Seal hunting, a critical part of Inuit life, has been controversial for a long time. Now, a new generation of Inuit, armed with social media and their own sense of humor and justice, are challenging the anti-sealing groups and bringing their own voices into the conversation. Director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril joins her fellow Inuit activists as they challenge outdated perceptions of Inuit and present themselves to the world as a modern people in dire need of a sustainable economy.
Joining us for a post film Q&A is Aaju Peter (via Skype), the Inuk lawyer, activist and sealskin clothes designer featured in the film, and Myla Vincenti Carpio from the Jicarilla Apache Nation, and also ASU professor.
