SHORT FILMS

Inspired by the short stories written by our circumpolar authors, the short films apply the techniques used in onstage puppetry, object manipulation, lights and shadows to the creation of unique digital pieces.

SILENCE, c’est le regard inquiet d’une jeune femme du Nord sur la mutation de notre terre face aux bouleversements écologiques, à l’exode de notre faune et bientôt de nos populations. Créé avec Neevie Simigak, jeune inuk rencontrée lors d’une expédition au Nunavik, le court métrage SILENCE est un cri silencieux.

Le film tire son inspiration de deux nouvelles circumpolaires écrites dans le cadre du cycle nordique. L’une, d’Alexander Seryakov, nous vient du nord de la Russie et l’autre, de Pipaluk Løgstrop, est d’origine groenlandaise. Toutes deux nous parlent, à leur manière, de transformation et d’espoir. Le traitement des images, l’animation et les ombres filmées teintent le court métrage d’une trame poétique et impressionniste où la musique remplace les mots.

FISH HOLE

Created in six days.A coproduction between Theatre Incline and the Arctic Arts Summit (Norway) with the support of the Nordland Visual Theatre.

When a giant hole appears at the limit of the arctic, the walking fishes are left with a hard choice to make. Struggling with the unknown fate or diving away. The latest seems even more tempting since a new salesman offers deals for relocation in the south. Fish Hole is a geologic tale that brings about the questions of appropriation of the territory and the danger to let others decide where and how we should live.
