Angry Inuk (2016)
November 10, 2022 6:39 AM - Subscribe

With "sealfies" and social media, a new tech-savvy generation of Inuit is wading into the world of activism, using humor and reason to confront aggressive animal rights vitriol and defend their traditional hunting practices. Director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril joins her fellow Inuit activists as they challenge outdated perceptions of Inuit and present themselves to the world as a modern people in dire need of a sustainable economy.

Ecellent movie, and great antidote to the perhaps well-meaning but culturally oblivious critics of the seal hunt.
