A case study by Mark Hamilton on the making of the recently-completed feature documentary KAPPIATAITTUT / FEARLESS. The film was commissioned by Nunavut Tunngavik Inc., the political organization that administers the Nunavut land claim agreement. Mark is the Producer, Director, Writer and DOP. In the workshop, he will look at film making as a community outsider, and the practical aspects of working with extensive archival material and over twenty interviews filmed in a language other than his own.

Synopsis for KAPPIATTAITTUT / FEARLESS: "In the 1960s, a new generation of Inuit foresaw the extinction of their culture and witnessed their parents and grandparents living in fear. A small group of rebellious young Inuit set out to fight back against the destructive forces of cultural domination and colonialism. Their vision – a land claim agreement with the Canadian government that would result in a new territory called Nunavut, where Inuit would have decision-making power in their homeland, regain control of their destiny and save their culture and language. A twisting, dramatic, thirty-year long fight for aboriginal rights that reshaped Canadian Confederation. Told in the voices of people who made Canadian history."
