Directed By: John Walker
(Canada, 2013, 90 mins, DCP)

In his latest masterful documentary, John Walker traces the origins of Nunavut. The furthest thing from a stodgy history lesson, this is an epic drama featuring radicals, visionaries and Western civilization’s largest land claim. It’s also an incredibly personal film, as it charts Walker’s return to the High Arctic he first explored as a wide-eyed teenager. Winner, Best Atlantic Feature, Atlantic 2013.
