Season 2 Episode 1: Alethea Arnaquq-Baril
Welcome to the second season of The Gaze! The show is now a monthly podcast available for download on iTunes, Soundcloud and Google Play. In this sophomore season, we sit down with three female Indigenous filmmakers to discuss the creative, commercial and emotional labour of making films in Canada.
We kick-off our first episode with Alethea Arnaquq-Baril, director of the critically acclaimed documentary, Angry Inuk (see trailer below). The film is a controversial piece about the commercial rights of Inuit seal hunters in Canada’s North. It premiered at Hot Docs last year and subsequently won the festival’s audience choice award.
Join us as we chat candidly with Alethea about the making of her first feature film and the courage it took to tackle a subject matter many cautioned against.
A big thank you to Phèdre for The Gaze theme music and to Inaam Haq for the sound mix.
