Issaittuq (Waterproof)

ISUMA, Bruce Haulli, Norman Cohn, Zacharias Kunuk and Artcirq

2007, 45:00 minutes, colour, Inuktitut


After a young Inuk loses his love, he tumbles headlong into a downward spiral of alcohol and violence. Sentenced by his community to a remote outpost camp, he grudgingly follows the simple, traditional life imposed upon him by elders until the past hunts him down, pulling him hauntingly in and out of history.
