Nunavut Animation Lab: Qalupalik
Deep in the Arctic Ocean lives Qalupalik – a part-human sea monster that preys on children who do not listen to their parents or elders. That is the fate of Angutii, a young boy who refuses to help out in his family’s camp and who plays by the shoreline… until one day Qalupalik seizes him and drags him away. Angutii’s father, a great hunter, must then embark on a lengthy kayak journey to try and bring his son home. This film recounts this traditional tale using striking stop-motion animation with leather cutouts.
