Outer Limits of Animation 2010



A self-important colonial explorer emerges from a sailing ship and plants a flag on the Arctic ice, as a bemused Inuit hunter looks on. Then the explorer plants another, and another, and another, while the hunter, clearly not impressed that his land has been “discovered,” quietly goes about his business.

In this charming and humorous re-imagining of first contact between Inuit and European, Jonathan Wright brings us the story of a savvy hunter and the ill-equipped explorer he outwits. In partnership with the National Film Board of Canada, the Inuit Broadcasting Corporation (IBC) acquired equipment, hosted workshops and sponsored four Nunavut artists to be trained at the Banff New Media Institute and to produce animated shorts for broadcast. This film is one of the results of this initiative.
