NAPAGUNNAQULLUSI - So That You Can Stand (director Ole Gjerstad) is the inside David-versus-Goliath story, seen through Inuit eyes, of the tense negotiations that led to the signing of the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement in November 1975. It is the story of a small band of young Inuit, working closely with the elders of their community, to fight a rearguard battle against a powerful government-corporate behemoth determined to usurp part of their Inuit homeland. In memory of Mark Annanack, George Koneak, Johnny Williams, and Mark R. Gordon; and dedicated to all the other Nunavimmiut who made it happen. In Inuktitut, English &French with English subtitles. (Studio Pascal Blais, 2015, 83 min.).
Audience discussion and Q&A will follow the film screening.
