This April the Arctic Museum is hosting a film festival celebrating the recovery of forgotten archival films documenting the Arctic, the discovery of people who contributed to the films but whose efforts were uncredited, and the ways Inuit filmmakers are using historic, visual documents in their contemporary films.

On Friday, April 12 at 7 PM we will focus on contemporary Inuit filmmakers using archival footage in their work. Mark Turner, an historian and media archivist, Willi Lempert, an anthropologist working with Indigenous filmmakers, will lead the dialogue as we screen two short films: Holly Andersen’s Hebron Relocation and Asinnajaq’s Three Thousand. Each film takes a different approach to using historic footage of the Arctic, and we look forward to an interesting discussion of the ways Indigenous filmmakers are repurposing historic film footage in their own works.
