Travelers is an experimental "documentary" about my relationships with the women of Igloolik I have been producing videos with in the last 6 years. It is a self-portrait of the distances I covered in my life in Igloolik, and a portrait of my women friends there. Distance is not only about airports. This video explores the meaning of travelling to all of us - in geography, in culture, in imagination, in personal growth and courage. Viewers will meet a group of women who, in their own remarkable ways, share with us their world, their voyages and their dreams.
Travelers reflects the interactions and relations between some women who happen to be mostly Inuit and mostly from Igloolik. Travelers they are: in space, time, emotions and levels of reality. This video was shot between Igloolik and Ottawa, from Spring to Winter 1996.
