One Day in the Life of Noah Piugattuk
This film explores the life of the late Igloolik elder Noah Piugattuk, who was born in 1900 and passed away in 1996 — which means it tells the story of momentous cultural change and the relocation of Inuit people, of resiliency and adaptation. Following the Ottawa premiere, director Lucy Tulugarjuk (Fast Runner) and Tessa Kunuk, who debuts in the film in the role of Nattuk, will answer questions from the audience and speak about their experiences making the film.
$16 ($14 in advance).
Thursday, Feb. 13. 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Alma Duncan Salon, Ottawa Art Gallery, 10 Daly Ave.
