October 25 – The Journals of Knud Rasmussen is the second movie in the Isuma trilogy chronicling Knud Rasmussen and Peter Freuchen’s visit to Igloolik in the 1920s when they met a shaman at a time when the community was converting to Christianity. Igloolik’s Zacharias Kunuk co-directed the film and Igloolik Isuma Productions Incorporated produced it. The Nunavut Film Development Corporation contributed $200,000 towards the film.
