imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival in Toronto, Oct. 16 to 21.

“This anniversary presents an opportunity to take a look at what has been accomplished over the years. Isuma has contributed a incomparable body of work to contemporary Inuit visual culture,” said curator Isabella-Rose Weetaluktuk.
