Unakuluk, dear little one is a documentary film about having children, different ways of having children in the inuit culture and, more precisely in Igloolik, an island situated at the south-west of Baffin Island. The film we made starts with individual stories and it leads into an incursion into the dynamic of Inuit family relations. For Inuit, it is a time to look at the transformation of their society in something fundamental : the constitution of their families and for a Southern audience the film transmits very precious teachings, based on Inuit values of helping each other and sharing.

Director: Marie-Hélène Cousineau, in collaboration with Mary Kunuk
Language: Inuktitut with English, French or Spanish subtitles.
