Tangonan presents a modern myth in “River of Small Gods” about alienation from the land and the consequences of denying our connection to it. On the brink of eviction, a Hawaiian woman takes a job to retrieve stones for a sculptor – a journey that takes her to a sacred riverbed where her material and spiritual needs converge. (Lacuna Films Inc. and Pacific Islanders in Communications, 2021, 16 min.).

In “Angakakusajaujuq – The Shaman’s Apprentice,” a young shaman must face her first test—a trip underground to visit Kannaaluk, The One Below, who holds the answers to why a community member has become ill. Facing dark spirits and physical challenges, she must trust her mentor’s teachings and learn to control her fear. In Inuktitut with English subtitles. (Taqqut Productions, Kingulliit Productions, 2021, 20 min.).

Following the screening, Director Zacharias Kunuk will join for a discussion moderated by Mervyn Tano, president of the International Institute for Indigenous Resource Management.

This is a free virtual event, but RSVP is required.
