Dir. John Walker, 2013, 90 min.
Arctic Defenders tells the story of the creation of the Inuit-governed territory Nunavut and the young, radical Inuit determined to redraw political boundaries and reclaim their land. Inuk activist Oo Apik and filmmaker John Walker investigate the Canadian government’s attempts to assert its sovereignty in the High Arctic, while finding hope and inspiration in the stories from the Defenders who established the largest territorial re-visioning in western civilization.
Screening followed by a conversation with filmmaker John Walker with other film participants.Get Tickets
