Kingulliit

Creator(s): Avataq Cultural Institute

"Kingulliit" refers to the generation of Inuit born between 1900 and 1930 — the first in centuries to face a radically new world.

Through a series of seven short films shot between 1956 and 1974 in Nunavut and in Nunavik, renowned anthropologist Bernard Saladin d’Anglure explores a society in transition. The rare footage records Inuit daily life during two pivotal decades, from nomadic ways to traditional skills to spiritual beliefs. The accompanying website includes director’s commentaries and background information on each film.
