The AGG in collaboration with the Guelph Arts Council and the Guelph Community Health Centre is pleased to present a free screening of Alethea Arnaquq-Baril’s award-winning NFB feature documentary Angry Inuk, followed by a director talkback and roundtable discussion on food security and sustainable communities.
Joining us via video from Iqaluit, Nunavut, Arnaquq-Baril will answer questions about the making of the film and its impact nationally and internationally, then participate in a conversation with representatives from local organizations engaged in issues related to food security in a global context. Offering a vital Indigenous perspective, Angry Inuk thoughtfully and passionately addresses the impact that international bans on seal products have had on Arctic communities and the absence of Inuit voices from these debates.
This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Getting Under Our Skin: Sealing, Artistic Expression, and Inuit Resilience, on view at the Art Gallery of Guelph until September 5, 2018.
