NATIVe - Indigenous Cinema

Three Thousand

## ## ## ## ## ##

By revisiting audio-visual Inuit history, Asinnajaq explores her heritage, at the same time plunging into a sublime imaginary universe. The director combines different techniques of animation with archival footage from a range of sources: early ethnographic documentaries, newsreels and works of Inuit film-makers to create a tapestry of sensations and reflect on how much and how little life has changed.
