ISUMA: One Day in the Life of Noah Piugattuk

ISUMA: One Day in the Life of Noah Piugattuk

From May 10 to November 24, 2019, the Canada Pavilion of the 58th Venice Biennale will feature the work of the Inuit film collective ISUMA led by Zacharias Kunuk. The installation features Isuma’s newest film, One Day in the Life of Noah Piugattuk, which recreates an encounter on Baffin Island in 1961 when Inuit life on the land changed forever.
The AGA is proud to present this major new work concurrent with its presentation at the Venice Biennale and at the inaugural Toronto Biennial. The exhibition will also include previous documentary works as well as Silakut, a series of live webcasts from the Arctic, that will take viewers to the edge of the spring ice melt in the Foxe Basin, into the lives of Inuit elders, and to Pond Inlet for government hearings about the Mary River mine development on Baffin Island. The AGA will screen these webcasts as they occur from July to September. Silakut is also available on-line at http://isuma.tv/live.
