“I decided to put my aqtuqsi in video. It’s so interesting because it is not a nightmare or a regular dream. An aqtuqsi is something that can paralyze you while you're sleeping.”Mary Kunuk

An engaging video that uses a blend of digital video and animation to create a contemporary kind of storytelling.
