Run time: 71 minutes
Rated: PG

As a small group in Nunavut, Canada prepare for a seminal LGBTQ Pride celebration in the Arctic, the film explores how colonization and religion have shamed and erased traditional Inuit beliefs about sexuality and family structure and how, 60 years later, a new generation of Inuit are actively ‘unshaming’ their past.”

This film is followed by a talk back with special guests. Discussion will focus on Indigenous knowledge of gender identity and expression and the continuing shift toward decolonizing the gender binary.
