Venue: National Maritime Museum, Greenwich

As part of the ORIGINS OFFSHOOTS Indigenous Cultures Film Season at the National Maritime Museum, join us for a screening of Inuk activist Alethea Arnaquq-Baril’s 2017 documentary film, ANGRY INUK: a huge hit at ORIGINS 2017. This film explores the role of seal hunting from an Inuit perspective set against a backdrop of external forces who are threatening their way of life.

The film will be preceded by an optional gallery tour in the Museum’s new Polar Worlds gallery led by Claire Warrior, a Polar history researcher and Senior Interpretation Curator at the National Maritime Museum, who has recently returned from an expedition to the Arctic. 

Following the film screening, the film’s director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril will give a talk via Skype from Nunavut, hosted by Border Crossings' Chair Alastair Niven, with time for audience Q&A.
