Lumaaq tells the story of a legend widely believed by the Povungnituk Innuit. The artist’s drawings are transferred to paper, cut out and animated under the camera. The result is Innuit prints in action. Dialogue, music and artwork make this film a total cultural transplant. Sound film without commentary.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
