Inuit High Kick
The high kick is an ancient celebration of Inuit culture. Here is an extraordinary, “exquisitely shot” celebration – filmed in super-slow motion – of an athlete performing the traditional high kick. The jumper, Johnny Issaluk, goes as high as he can to kick a sealskin target. Then he has to land on the same foot he kicked with.
As the director says of her film, “It’s just a reminder that cultures are all different, but that in the end we’re all the same. . . . No matter where you come from, sports are all a way to keep healthy, and to challenge yourself, and to have fun with your community.”
