Nunavut Animation Lab: The Bear Fact
A self-important colonial explorer emerges from a sailing ship and plants a flag on the Arctic ice, as a bemused Inuit hunter looks on. Then the explorer plants another, and another, and another, while the hunter, clearly not impressed that his land has been “discovered,” quietly goes about his business.
In this charming and humorous re-imagining of first contact between the Inuit and the European, Jonathan Wright brings us the story of a savvy hunter and the ill-equipped explorer he outwits.
